Summary
  • "Un desconocido, solo y hamriento, llega a un pueblo del campo pidiendo ayuda. Una niña, menospreciada por la comunidad, es la única persona que valientemente es la ofrece. Juntos hacen una sopa tradicional dominicana llamada sancocho, usando la receta secreta que el extraño trajo de tierras lejanas ... Ambientada en la República Dominicana, esta versión del clásico "sopa de piedras" sigue tan vigente como siempre. El sancocho sorpresa del buen desconocido es un libro que disfrutarán tanto ninos como padres y maestros." --adapted from back cover
  • A stranger comes to a rural town, hungry and alone. He asks for help, but only a young girl, looked down upon by her community, is brave enough to offer it. Together they make sancocho - a traditional Dominican Soup - using a secret recipe the stranger has brought from far away. Seemingly out of nothing, the pair creates a miraculous banquet, and along the way they teach the villagers a lasting lesson about generosity, and overcoming fear. A re-telling of the classic tale "Stone Soup", here set in the Dominican Republic, The Good Stranger's Sancocho Surprise is as timely as ever, and will be enjoyed by children, parents, and teachers alike --
