    This book captures me on many levels There is the mimicry of The House That Jack Built so it is a great addition to a unit on cumulative stories There is a wonderful non fiction component, so it can be paired with biography or how to units and of course the art component means that this book would be fabulous with a pottery unit too On top of all of those thematic possibilities, the illustrations are dazzling in themselves David Diaz uses bold colors and design that captures readers.My s This book captures me on many levels There is the mimicry of The House That Jack Built so it is a great addition to a unit on cumulative stories There is a wonderful non fiction component, so it can be paired with biography or how to units and of course the art component means that this book would be fabulous with a pottery unit too On top of all of those thematic possibilities, the illustrations are dazzling in themselves David Diaz uses bold colors and design that captures readers.My students immediately began to chime in on the rhyming portion of the text They especially loved the line, Before it was baked in the cow manure fire Each two page spread has a bit of the rhyme and the facing page has a brief explanation to go along with it This is where the details are explained like the fact that Juan does in fact gather cow manure and uses it as the fuel for the fire.My students were fascinated to learn that this story is about a real person and there is a website that shows some of the pictures from the information section at the end of the book in addition to evenpictures of his actual work.To see that one man taught himself how to create pots of such beauty using only the natural materials from the land around him is pretty amazing That he shared this knowledge with his community so they could also create these kinds of pots is eveninspiring My third graders were quite impressed with his abilities and also found the rhyme to be quite fun It is a joy to be able to share such a unique non fiction text with my students.After using the book in lessons, I also found several videos online so in the future we will also get to hear from Juan Quezada himself.I will be recommending this book to many people in the future.Originally reviewed at Reading Through Life

    Beautifully done biography with accompanying rhyming poem that adds a line whenever we learn a new step with Juan, who is making one of his pots I loved the text style they chose to use, the illustrations were lovely and I just realized that David Diaz was the guy who did the wonderful illustrations for Eve Bunting s Smoky Night which I also loved , and the afterword fascinating I have hand built, and wheel thrown pottery before though I prefer the wheel , so it was interesting to see how Beautifully done biography with accompanying rhyming poem that adds a line whenever we learn a new step with Juan, who is making one of his pots I loved the text style they chose to use, the illustrations were lovely and I just realized that David Diaz was the guy who did the wonderful illustrations for Eve Bunting s Smoky Night which I also loved , and the afterword fascinating I have hand built, and wheel thrown pottery before though I prefer the wheel , so it was interesting to see how Juan did it in the traditional style without all the modern conveniences that most potters use today
