The Pot that Juan Built
by Nancy Andrews-Goebel

How can a piece of broken pottery found in the hills near his home change the life of a twelve-year old boy?

How can the dreams and creativity of this boy as a grown man change a whole village?

Why does the world celebrate the work of Juan Que zada?

Celebrating a Mexican Potter, author Nancy Andrews-Goebel weaves his biography into the pattern of "The House that Jack Built".

The Pot that Juan Built is a four-tiered picture book biography. Vivid illustrations bring the story to life on every page. On each left-facing page, the story of Mexican potter Juan Quezada follows the model of "The House that Jack Built." On right facing pages, for better readers, the story is told in detailed paragraphs. In the Afterword, additional information and photos elaborate even the potter's story even further.
