Stone Soup

Then one day. Everyone watched as the stranger dropped the stone into the pot. . a stranger came to town and invited everyone to share her special stone soup.Once there was a town where the people were so selfish that they never shared anything with anyone.

The mayor came forward and offered carrots from her garden. . The mayor tasted the soup. The fire chief stepped forward and offered a handful of potatoes from her pantry. “If only we could add some potatoes.She stirred and stirred and finally said that she wished she had some carrots to make the soup taste better.” she said.

The soup smelled so good that soon everyone wanted to add something to the cooking pot. People ran home and brought back meat. . everybody had a bowl. a tomato and some celery. They thanked the stranger for her magic stone. When the soup was ready. It felt so good to enjoy something they all had shared in making. onions.

After the soup was gone. . the townsfolk did something they had never done before. They had a party and danced and sang all night long.
