Description: Stone Soup is a wonderful Folktale which has been retold in different ways by several authors. This is my version of Stone Soup. A folktale is a shared oral story passed down from one generation to another. The story can be shaped by the story teller to fit the needs of the listeners. It has a setting, a conflict & tired and solving the conflict (eating & sleeping.) About the story: Two hungry & tired travelers arrive in a village. They request something to eat and a place to sleep. To their surprise, villagers close their doors and say they don’t have any food. The travelers create a plan to make a Magical Stone Soup using 2 round stones as a starter. This is a predictable story with similar text on each page. In the end, villagers contribute food and the soup grows. “It takes a village” is a perfect quote for this story – showing the positive outcome of kindness, sharing, generosity….and the magic of positive thinking!
