Transcript of Stone soup

Stone Soup This is a presentation for .... Stone soup
by: Jon J. Muth Listen to me reading! I will start with alliteration A good example of alliteration is the books title..... Next are the similes. A simile I found in one of the starting pages......
His face as bright as the moon more examples of alliteration are ....... Soy Sauce!!! They Lit Lanterns And Sang Songs Smooth Stones An example of personification is... The soup "grew" richer Onomatopoeia is shown once or twice in this story Like Knock, Like knock A metaphor being "As each person opened their heart to give" Juxtaposition can be the monks compared to the villagers. The monks are all nice and sharing. while the villagers weren't kind and to them selves! Foreshadowing is seen saying.. "These people do no know happiness," they all agreed. "But today" said Siew, his face bright as the moon, "We will show them how to make stone soup". It makes you anticipate the upcoming events of the villagers The settings of the book are the.. the mountains, the village, the village courtyard, and a village house The problem in the story is that 3 monks came across a village that wasn't filled with spirit and joy. They never shared, talked to each other or over all seen each other. This is more like a
person vs person or person vs society This is a 1st P.O.V. Meaning its told from a narrators view opposed to one of the main characters P.O.V The perspective that was missed was the villagers. It was told from the narrators view because if it was through the monks P.O.V it would be sort of bland or empty. Say if the P.O.V was from Siew the monk. He wouldn't say how the villagers came to see what he was making or how the little girl got the pot. It would be like... "I waited and waited then the girl came with a huge crowd of people". Character traits Siew:
He is old, in the start when they mentioned Hok, Lok and himself they said Siew was the oldest, his illustration looked quite old to
Siew is wise, he knows what to do when people aren't acting right , in this case not doing anything at all
He is patient, he waited until he knew everyone was there and helping until he said they could drink the soup
This is the end of the presentation for Stone Soup thanks for Watching!!!!!!!!!!! *Applause* Nice :) Mean :( I think the main idea of this book is that, to live life to its full extent, you need to be able to have a social life and be able to experience hard times (like the villagers) and move on. You need to be able to share and care
