Nly are interested in something special rather than being happy for the simplicity of beingit appears that human nature to move forward when someone needs something and will stay when there is to offer but i think in the religions it is reminding us that giving nothing is better than taking everything hence the symbolism of jesus that christians want to rub in our faces he died for our sins is not the actual message but the message that he took his life to give making sacrifices is the actual reason why we live and not living in one man s house to have a one night stand with another to move forward to date a third because that is easy convenience a type of cheating in getting your way selfishly so lease do not forgive those who cheat because you are only enabling them to get away with shittiness extending their roblem of affluenza I ve gone down a rabbit trail of finding stories that enticed me and stuck with me as a kid This is one of them The sense of community and value one Changing Face of the Hero person can bring to a table seating many has always remained with me when this book comes to mind Loved it My grandma had a copy she kept in her book treasure chest Not everyone can turn aot of The Undisputed Greatest Writer of All Time: A Collection of Poetry plain water into a nourishing mealI thought the two main characters were clever men The fact that they chose not to reveal anything about their backstories only made them intriguing to me It was easy to imagine a few of thelaces they might have first learned how to create stone soup and why it s something that can only be done after you ve made everyone irresistibly curious about what this meal is and why it s a little magicalThe message of this retelling was heavy handed and I m saying that as someone who really enjoyed the traditional story it was based on This sort of soup can only exist if its made with than just StoryBranding: Creating Stand-Out Brands Through The Power of Story physical ingredients Spelling out what those things were wasn t necessary Thelot itself made it very clear As much as I liked seeing how the author approached this topic I do think it would have been effective if she d allowed her audience to come to their own conclusions about the meaning of itWith that being said I did enjoy the multicultural take on this tale The original version didn t mention the ethnicities of any of the characters involved Even if it had I always find it interesting to see how a familiar lot might unfold if it s transplanted from the culture that created it to an entirely new home altogether Ms Forest did a good job of showing how the same twists could happen anywhereStone Soup should be read by anyone who enjoys retellings of famous legends I enjoyed this version of the famous story handed down in various forms for many generations I was surprised to learn from the author s note that the version I heard as a child apparently originated in Sweden An interesting fact and it made me wonder if that was art of the heritage of the state I grew up in uite a few Swedes settled in Michigan in its early daysAnyway I enjoyed this retelling of the story The story is all about sharing and especially in this retelling it s all about community In this safe little town where eople were afraid of outsiders fears were overcome The townspeople ended up sharing with each other and with the two outsiders As a result the community was enlarged and strengthened The illustrations were beautifully done and added to THE THEME OF A INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY theme of a inclusive community depicting uite a diverse group of townspeople Nicely done When two hungry travelers find themselves in a rosperous looking mountain village they are surprised to discover that no one is willing to share any food with them Deciding that the residents need a lesson in the form of a communal meal the travelers set out to make that famous culinary creation known stone soup Soon villagers young and old are contributing the ingredients necess From the cover image and book description of Heather Forest s retelling of the Stone Soup folktale I was expecting to really enjoy this here Pure Chance picture book And while I do appreciate the story on so many levels and am in fact completely wowed by Susan Gaber s gorgeous and evocative accompanying illustrations I think that the narrative itself is than a bit too openly didactic Why is the magic ingredient of sharing spelled out not only so overtly but also repeatedly Most individuals even children are aware of the fact that sharing is considered a virtue. No food to share they must be in greater need than we are With that the travelers demonstrate their special recipe for a magical soup using a stone as a starter All they need is a carrot which a young girl volunteers Not to be outdone another villager contributes aotato and the soup grows as others bring corn celery and other vegetables and seasonings In this cumulative retelling of an ancient and widely circulated.
