Ever heard the story STONE SOUP?  If you have you know that two very hungry soldiers came into a village, very hungry and penniless.

I know you want to know more of this story, so stay tuned.  I have some ideas simmering on the back burner. This stew will involve you. If you know the story, are you getting any ideas of what might happen?

We will have some fun here.  Sharing.  I’m not sure exactly how it will work, so stay hungry and bring a rock spoon.  scones


Stone Soup is a great story to read to children.  It certainly teaches the value of sharing.

The soldiers were great entrepreneurs.  They had  a   need (food) and   sold (so to speak) the villagers on the idea of contributing to the good of all, who thought they were participating in a form of magic.

My idea for  Stone Soup is to start with a small pebble of an idea and have you the reader contribute.  Perhaps leave a sentence or two in the comments to add to the fun.

I’m not sure this will even turn into some great stew, but it might be fun to try.

Anyone have a great sentence to begin our little collaboration… a little nugget to chew on?  Put it in the comments and stir in any other ideas you have.

So, I hope I have sold you on this idea.  Nays or yeas…let me know.

  1. It was harvest season when the soldiers came. Laila heard the boots crunching on the clay and without turning around she ran as fast as she could, clutching the flower she had just picked – saffron.

Got something to season my kettle of soup? Stir it in and savor the flavor.
