Preschoolers give thanks with 'Stone Soup'

stone soup 3 CMYK.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — “Stone soup is what you need, when you’ve got some friends to feed.” 

A chorus of 3- and 4-year-old voices sweetly sings this Pete Seeger verse while crowded around a big pot on the floor. One of them holds an immersion blender. 

“I’ll do it myself!” exclaims Bea before carefully pureeing the cooked veggies within. When the song is done, she passes the pot and blender to the next eager preschooler, and the soup-making, and singing, continues.

At Quarry Hill School in Middlebury, November is all about Stone Soup. Three- and 4-year-olds spend the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving immersing themselves in the classic tale and preparing for a feast. They chop vegetables, make bread, churn butter, decorate stones and write menus and invitations. It all culminates in a big party — with songs and soup, of course — at school with their families.
