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.

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.
