The Pot That Juan Built
By Christian Schools Int'l
(Library Materials Guide, Christian Schools International) This is a biography of Juan Quezadaâ€™s pioneering work with pottery. Told with dual text â€” cumulative rhyme about how a pot is made alongside the narrative story about Juanâ€™s life â€” the story can be read in two ways. Echoing the text, Caldecott Medal winner Diaz communicates through dual images, with Juanâ€™s journey in making a pot superimposed with traditional Mexican designs. With an extensive five-page afterword including color photographs, this is as authentic as it is a quality piece of literature.
