Stone Soup Winner of Parents Choice Award Bank Street College Best Childrens Books of the Year Two hungry travelers arrive at a village expecting to find a household that will share a bit of food, as has been the custom along their journey To their surprise, villager after villager refuses to share, each one closing the door with a bang As they sit to rest beside a well, one of the travelers observes that if the townspeople have no food to share, they must be in greater need than we are With that, the travelers demonstrate their special recipe for a magical soup, using a stone as a starter All they need is a carrot, which a young girl volunteers Not to be outdone, another villager contributes a potato, and the soup grows as others bring corn, celery, and other vegetables and seasonings In this cumulative retelling of an ancient and widely circulated legend, author Heather Forest shows us that when each person makes a small contribution, the collective impact can be huge Susan Gabers paintings portray the optimism and timelessness of a story that celebrates teamwork and generosity This story about community teaches readers the importance of sharing, generosity and vegetables August House Publishers offer an animated version of Stone Soup as well as free lesson plans
