In this beautifully worded and illustrated version of the tale of Stone Soup, three Chinese monks are on a journey to understand what makes a person happy. The monks visit a mountain village where the villagers are guarded and unwelcoming. Cleverly, they build a fire and begin making a soup made from stones. From this experience, the curious villagers all learn to open their hearts and to give as they come together and contribute to the stone soup. In this unit, you will find fun activities to pair with this beloved book, such as building stone patterns, making sensory rocks, and eating with chopsticks.
