Synopsis

Bowls of Happiness Treasures from China and the Forbidden City by Brian Tse, Alice Mak

**Winner of the American Library Association's Parent's Choice Gold Award** Piggy's mom loves her so much that she has decided to make a special porcelain bowl just for her. As mom makes the bowl, Piggy enters the world being painted on its outside. There she meets and learns about the animals used on these Chinese artworks and the messages of happiness and good-fortune that they convey. Created by internationally renowned children's book artists Brian Tse and Alice Mak, this book teaches children about Chinese artwork and culture and their universal spirit of generosity, love, and respect for nature. The lovable illustrations are coupled with photographs of porcelain art found in the Palace Museum's collection. Children will learn about how bowls are made and be able to draw their own Bowl of Happiness after they have finished reading the story.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
