Our favourite old Stone Soup tale celebrates the power of generosity. Stone Soup has its traditional roots in European folklore. There are many versions of the story, in the most familiar versions, the soup is made from stones.
“Three monks, journey along a mountain road trying to understand what makes one happy.
At once the monks encounter frightened villagers who lock their windows and darken their homes. The villagers have long been ravaged by harsh times, and their hearts have grown hard toward everyone they meet.
But when the monks cleverly entice them to make Soup from Stones, the villagers discover how much they each have to give – and how much more comes back in return”.
