      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 [...]

      I read this book for a project I was doing on pottery and I just loved it On the left page of each two page spread was a poem or song that talked about the pot that Juan built, appropriate for all ages But when reading to older children, there is historical background on the true story of Juan Quezada on the right page His story is really interesting He discovered a broken piece of pottery from an ancient people that had lived in his town over 600 years and then he just goes on a personal discov [...]

      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 d [...]

      audience primary genre poetry and nonfictionquote promoting mental images and rationale The beautiful pot that Juan built pg 21.While this quote seems simple, it appears at the end of the long, rhyming poem like story that has gone into detail describing Juan figuring out how to make pottery, describing the process, and what the pot looks like summarizing simply with the quote above I would have students create drawings or projects with construction paper to show the beautiful pot that they see [...]

      I haven t run across a children s picture book before that I could classify as inspiring until this book Here we take something familiar The House Jack Built and give it a twist at times funny, always interesting And then alongside of it, tell the story behind the story, of a man who changed his entire community for the better This is very cool, and very well done Share this with your family but be sure to read all the notes on the side, AND everything in the afterward Loved this

      I like that way that this book is laid out It may seem like asimple or just a kids book but I say that we can all learn from it Their are wonderful illustriations throughout A story of making apot is presented in prose on one side of the page On the other is a tale that reads or less like a history lesson The tale woven is tha of Juan Quezada, a premier Mexican potter.

      This book is the creative telling of how a clay pot is made The main text of the story is told in rhyme, with a pattern Accompanying this text is factual information telling the life story of Juan Quezada The extensive afterword details both Quezada s life, his connection to his culture, his artwork, and the pot making process The illustrations are beautiful, and the story engaging.

      The Pot that Juan Built by Nancy Andrews Coebel and illustratred by David Diaz, is an informative book that teaches children about the artist Juan Quezada, and the contributions he made to his town in Mexico Older elementary students like fourth through sixth graders can appreciate this book because the pictures are simplistic and the text is repetitive as well The text itself is lengthy and is meant to inform, thus older readers would benefit from it The illustrator David Diaz is a Caldecott wi [...]

      I liked this book The rhythm of the words made it fun to read On the left hand page was a poem like narrative of how the pot was built all of the way from the cow s manure And on the right hand page was a detailed recount of the actual work that was put into the pot Together, the two parts did a really nice job of tying the story together I bet little kids would just want to read the poem part, but maybe while they are looking at the pictures the parents could read the detailed version The illu [...]
