    review ↠ Stone Soup Stone SoupI remember reading or hearing this story when I was a little kid I don't know which particular version I was exposed to though it wouldn't have been this one it's too recent In any case there are probably better versions of the storyThis one takes place in a diverse but weirdly intolerant village There appear to be people of all ethnicities living together in harmony but they all share one prejudice against the poor When the travellers arrive in the village nobody wants to help although maybe the villagers just didn't like the rather judgmental tone of these two guys who seemed to think they were entitled to food They go around shouting Do you care Will you share The response is I don't care I won't share which may have to do with the perceived entitlement of the two travellers than any actual lackThe illustrations are just okay for me I don't know why the little black kid with his chocolate brown eyes is singled out for mention; aren't we supposed to avoid describing people of

    review ↠ Stone Soup Stone SoupThis is the fourth version of the tale Stone Soup that I’ve read I also gave four stars to the versions by Jon J Muth Marcia Brown and Ann McGovernWhat I liked less about this one is that the “magic ingredient” of sharing is spelled out than onceWhat I really enjoyed about it is some of the illustrations especially the two page spread with all the vegetables going into the pot and the illustration of the cat bird and dog partaking of the soup at the end when the people have finished eating There’s also a recipe for Stone Soup at the back of the book which is cool despite an actual stone being inclu

    review ↠ Stone Soup Stone Soupa good folklorefable that reminds everyone not just children of the importance of sharingbut also the idea that we can pretend we are too busy for each other until the intrigue of a magical soul and everyone wants to participate it unfortunately demonstrates that humans only are interested in something special rather than being happy for the simplicity of beingit appears that human nature to move forward when someone needs something and will stay when there is to offer but i think in the religions it is reminding us that giving nothing is better than taking everything hence the symbolism of jesus that christians want to rub in our faces he died for our

    review ↠ Stone Soup Stone SoupI enjoyed this version of the famous story handed down in various forms for many generations I was surprised to learn from the author's note that the version I heard as a child apparently originated in Sweden An interesting fact and it made me wonder if that was part of the heritage of the state I grew up in uite a few Swedes settled in Michigan in its early daysAnyway I enjoyed this retelling of the story The story is all about sharing and especially in this retelling it's all about community In this safe little town where people were afraid of outsiders fears were overcome The townspeople ended up sharing with each other and with the two outsiders As a result the community was enlarged and strengthened The illustrations were beautifully done and added to the theme of a inclusive community by depicting uite a diverse group of townspeople Nicely done

    review ↠ Stone Soup Stone SoupNot everyone can turn a pot of plain water into a nourishing mealI thought the two main characters were clever men The fact that they chose not to reveal anything about their backstories only made them intriguing to me It was easy to imagine a few of the places they might have first learned how to create stone soup and why it’s something that can only be done after you’ve made everyone irresistibly curious about what this meal is and why it’s a little magicalThe message of this ret
