Stone Soup Forever  Jul 28, 2007
This is a timeless story that I have told to firstly my children, and now my grandchildren. We cook 'stone soup' on many occasions,and even finicky eaters cannot resist the soup after they know the story. My eldest grandson (13) has his favourite stone that has served as the basis for the soup in recent times. He takes great delight in serving stone soup to his friends and showing them his 'stone'. The story I heard as a child was of a French soldier returning home after a Napolionic War where the village he entered was devestated by war etc. The underlying context of shared co-operation is wonderful example of how we can all get along together if we all put in something....

It's hard to read aloud to a group and show the pictures because of its smaller size.
Stone Soup leads to cooking fun!  Mar 23, 2007
"Three soldiers trudged down a road in a strange country. They were on their way home from the wars. Besides being tired, they were hungry. In fact, they hadn't eaten nothing for two days."

Follow how three soldiers make a delicious soup "fit for a king" with a stone.

Try reading this book with your child and make some stone soup together for lunch or dinner. Supervise carefully.
Stone Soup  Jan 11, 2007
This is a glorious book awith glorious illustrations. I remember being read this book by my mom. A favorite of mine when we went to the library. I bought it for my 3 year old. He is a bit young for it but I will have it when he is ready.
Stone Soup by Marcia Brown  Jul 23, 2006
I remember several stories that I loved very much as a child. One of them is the story of "Stone Soup". I saw it on the Captain Kangaroo television show--- the Captain read the story and the illustrations were shown page by page. I was delighted and spellbound. Everyone knows that you don't give anything away. To do so would be very foolish. Yet, in this story the people do give food away! And in the end, everyone shares in a feast because each one provided one small part of the meal. This is very moving to me. And a lesson that shapes my life every day. Thank you Marcia Brown for your retelling of this timeless tale, and to Bob Keeshan, the Captain, for bringing me this joyful tale. Larry Host, Sacramento, California, July 22, 2006
