Read Out Loud | STONE SOUP

Shhh. Come close. We have a secret recipe to share. From it, you can make a soup fit for a king — from stones! Join Rocco as he reads a KidLit classic from his personal collection. This week’s Read Out Loud is Marcia Brown’s STONE SOUP.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Clever soldiers outwit greedy townspeople with the creation of a special soup in this cherished classic, a Caldecott Honor book.
First published in 1947, this picture book classic has remained one of Marcia Brown’s most popular and enduring books. This story, about three hungry soldiers who outwit the greedy inhabitants of a village into providing them with a feast, is based on an old French tale.
