Bowls of Happiness: Treasures from China
In this book is a little girl named Piggy. Her mother makes bowls, and she really loves Piggy because she is her daughter. As Piggy and her mother walk around the farm, Piggy’s mother puts the things they see on the bowls she makes, like a pig, and flowers, and butterflies, clouds, birds, even bats and rain. Each thing that is put on the bowl represents something for happiness, like fruits represent things being happy when they meet. When the bowl is finished, the mother gives it to Piggy as a gift of happiness of all the happy things they have seen together.
That is the fun story about this Chinese bowl. The rest of the book tells you about different things that bowl makers put on their bowl to mean other things, and also shows you how these Chinese bowls are made. I like this book because it is fun and happy and has fun pictures that make you want to be happy too. It is also really fun to learn how these bowls are made and what the pictures on them mean. After you read this book, you will like looking at Chinese bowls because they will make you happy!
