"Stone Soup" also teaches how to make "something" out of "nothing", and that if everyone shares you can come up with something rather grand. One reviewer pointed out how "Stone Soup" lacked some of the action, and colorful illustrations of the other stories, but it is true to the original book which was written about fifty years ago.
"Strega Nona" is delightful! She is a wise, old woman, even if she is a witch (which I'm not fond of), but the story is set in Italy, and is a good folk tale.
Check out the Bonus stories. This is a great addition to your child's video collection.

This has always been one of my favorites in storytelling for kids......a moral lesson is told with great humor.
I highly recommend this video.
Grand kids love this story, so they really enjoyed seeing it come to life. Other folk tales on this DVD were also enjoyed. Great way to add fun to books they have read.Published on October 11, 2009 by mama C
