From strangers to members of the community

This is a great story of strangers overcoming adversity and suspicion and finding postive ways to bring out the best in people to be accepted into the community. Definitely fun and satisfying to read with your child.

Such a message oriented story

It is good tale for kids to teach about how we can make things amazing with others help. Initially it was just stones and ended with a great dining.

YES -- Pictures in the Audible App!

We recently discovered these kids audible books that have the illustrations in a slideshow as they listen to the stories on their fire tablets in the app. My boys (5-11) are all LOVING discovering their favorite stories over again with Audible! These are a STEAL!

A Lovely Read!

A very creative story with real life lessons. There's always more than one way to arrive at one's destination - and it can be just as simple!

Great presentation

I've actually never heard of this story until Robert Kiyosaki used it as a reference in one of his books and decided to give it a listen. The audio was done very well.

Plus pictures!

This is the story as I remember it.

At work, one of our favorite meals is Stone Soup. Every person brings just one item and we write down the cooking time for each ingredient. We list the longest cook time first, and on down the list to the shortest cook time. The company provides the meat. This is always fun and forms a strong team.
