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 the 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!

    " Great story of convincing someone to give and open up. You never know when you may need to make or create some soup to share. "

    " I absolutely loved the way this book was written!! The storyline is amazing and the pictures make it that much more fun! The story follows three monks and is based in China. The whole book is based around the idea of finding out what makes one happy. It starts off simple, with the help of a young girl, they create stone soup which began as three rocks and a pot. But once the fire began to grow, people in the village became interested and curious. Everyone began bringing their own little addition to make the soup a "melting pot" for everyone to share and enjoy. This is a great story for young elementary students to teach them the idea of inclusion and sharing. "

    " Fantastic retelling of the classic story with great illustrations. I love the Buddhist Monks who descend upon a Chinese village and bring joy to its inhabitants. I've read or heard the "Stone Soup" story many times, and this one is a great version. "
