The Pot That Juan Built Î Juan uezada is the premier potter in Mexico With local materials and the primitive methods of the Casas Grandes people including using human hair to make brushes and cow manure to feed the flames that fire his pots Juan creates stunning pots i. 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 readersMy 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 fireMy 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 even pictures of his actual workTo 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 even inspiring My third graders were uite impressed with his abilities and also found the rhyme to be uite fun It is a joy to be able to share such a uniue non fiction text with my studentsAfter using the book in lessons I also found several videos online so in the future we will also get to hear from Juan uezada himselfI will be recommending this book to many people in the futureOriginally reviewed at Reading Through Life Summary é eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ¹ Nancy Andrews-Goebel

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 uezada 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 discovery that brings the pottery back to life and turns his community from a poor village to a prosperous community of world famous artists There is also an afterword which has historical information This book could use in a cultural spotlight about Mexico it could be read when doing a unit on pottery it can be read during history There's many ways to incorporate in the classroom It's very interesting I definitely recommend it
