Stone Soup tells the story of three traveling magicians who hope to enjoy a delicious meal after entertaining the folks of a local village.  The people are happy to revel in the show but not at all willing to share their food with the performers, so the trio comes up with a plan to get the community to contribute food and learn that sharing can be a joyous and happy thing.  They create the magical stone soup which is enriched with delicious ingredients contributed by all - what could be better?

Our favorite part is the fun signs section that recaps all of the different signs you learn through out the DVD.  WE love learning new signs and this is a great way to do so.  I love that each DVD is not to long 25 minutes makes it a good time for children to sit and watch.
