Autumn is upon us. The weather is getting colder outside. The lure is to go play in the leaves, but when we come inside we want to warm up! During the colder autumn evenings, I enjoy warming up with a hot bowl of tasty soup! With the cooling weather it is fun to curl up together and share wonderful stories.
One short story that is fun for children, is the story of "Stone Soup." Years ago, a friend brought my family a pot of delecious Stone Soup. My friend actually adds a clean stone in her soup just for the fun of it, recalling the story Stone Soup. We skip the stone and read the story.
