A great book to discuss cleverness, rudeness, sharing, and problem solving.

A fairly straightforward retelling. Classic folk tale. ( )

A clever young man tricks an old woman into believing that soup can be made from a stone. As the pot of water boils with the stone in it, he urges her to add more and more ingredients until the soup is a feast "fit for a king." In print for 30 years. (Source: Amazon.com)

A simple stone is the beginning of a wonderfully, delicious soup enough to serve everyone..

Summary:
A young man knocks at the door of a little old lady in search of food. She had none and he asked for a stone to make a soup. He told her to boil some water, once it was boiling he added the stone. He simply asked her for some onions, carrots, beef bones, pepper, salt, butter, and barley. She gathered all the ingredients and they prepared a lovely soup “from a stone”. They set the table and ate all the soup.

Personal Reaction:
I love the message here. As long as you can put in the smallest thing you can have an amazing outcome.

Classroom:
Students could make their own recipe for stone soup.
Have students color and cut out vegetables to add to the classroom pot.
Students could then count how many vegetables are in their soup. ( )

This is a classic story. "Stone Soup" is a great sharing story and great for storytelling and being interactive.
