“Stone Soup” is a story that has been around for a very long time. Its origins are unknown, but it is likely to have come from Europe to America. Earlier versions of the story feature a beggar or travelers entering a village carrying a pot. They ask for food, and when they are turned away by the villagers, they build a fire, fill the pot with water and put a stone in it. The curious villagers come along, and are intrigued by the concept of stone soup. One at a time, each villager adds an ingredient to the pot, eventually creating a delicious feast. It is a story about cooperation and generosity.
