Some things never human nature! Human nature, values, and attitudes don't change with new technology, scientific breakthrough, or medical improvements. Stone Soup... first published in 1947. . . some 70 plus years ago remains relevant today.

So many people are living with a mindset of scarcity. People need to lead or shown how to contribute to create abundance. One person can enjoy the Abundance created together by many people. And usually, abundance is very difficult to be created by one person, and enjoyed by by person.

If, more people read Stone Soup, we can remind ourselves that . . .Together, we can ENJOY, DO, and BE so much more.

Stone Soup is classic Children's Literature, still relevant in today's world. I read it when I was a child and still use it in my own classroom. The theme involves giving to others in need, and how our perspective about giving can change, depending on circumstances. Giving to others usually brings its own rewards.
Three soldiers are passing through a town during wartime, needing food and shelter. The townspeople are not receptive or forthcoming with food. The visitors employ a little reverse psychology and invite the townspeople to help them make, and share, stone soup. As their curiosity gets the best of them, the townspeople share what they have and the entire town enjoys a festive evening of food and dance. They are offered the finest beds in town for the evening. They leave the next morning with the townspeople's blessing, remarking, "It's all in the knowing how!
I have loved this story since I heard Captain Kangaroo read it on TV when I was a child. And how exciting that it had the same graphics as the ones I remember! What a timeless story about setting aside grievances to work together for the greater good.
I was able to offer this story from my grade school years as a gift for my niece's expected little boy. I think Captain Kangaroo read me this story. The story helps us understand the miracle of the Loaves and Fishes by showing a village of scared people sharing their hoarded food and by doing so ending up with more than enough for everyone. They all experience the uplifting of the a celebration in well done, familiar illustrations.
I've loved this book since I was little and Captain Kangaroo used to read it! This year it is going in the grandchildren's easter basket. I do wish they would re do it into more of a picture book.
When I was young I listened to Captain Kangaroo read this story live on TV. I remembered it from way back because I thought the story was very interesting tail of human nature and curiosity. I would recommend this book to anyone who has little ones. They will find it to be a good story of human nature. Also not a bad read for the adults.
Great story! I remember reading this as a kid. I am using it to teach during the week before Thanksgiving and then we made "Stone Soup" pozole style lol. The kids have been loving it!
As most of the reviewers, I bought this book to read a story that I remember from childhood. It is one of those stories that everyone knows so I figured my son should have the book. He loves it. It is a nice length for a bed time story. He enjoys the silliness of putting stones in the soup and he likes the pictures in the book. The illustrations are much the same throughout the book as they are on the cover. I try to introduce older books into his library so he can appreciate all different types of art and language. I would highly recommend this classic book. Happy reading!!
