Stone Soup is one of the year's favorite lessons, especially because we make our own soup after reading the book! The story tells of how three strangers, hungry and tired, pass through a war-torn village. Embittered and suspicious from the war, the people hide their food and close their windows tight. That is, until these clever strangers suggest making a soup from stones. Intrigued by the idea, everyone brings what they have until-- together, they have made a feast fit for a king! This inspiring story teaches our kids about the strength people possess when they work together!
