January is national soup month, who knew? However it does makes sense in these colder months to settle down with a nice warming bowl of soup.
The story of “Stone Soup” is a wonderful story about the community working together and sharing. It tells the story of two strangers who come into town and announce to the villagers that they can make a soup out of one stone.
In her stone-soup-a-lesson-in-sharing, Amanda Morgan illustrates how to use the story of Stone Soup to engage the children in sharing activities and lists other food related activities, it also has a great quick recipe for soup!
