Baylor's worthy book provides an intriguing introduction to basic archaeology, and it would be an appropriate supplement to any class and, or discussion about the cultures of the ancient Southwest or their art. I do feel, however, that most children under five years old might not understand, appreciate many of concepts well enough to make true connections with the story, especially if they are from a region other than the Southwest.

When Clay Sings book. Clay has its own small voice, and sings. Its song has lasted for thousands of years. And Byrd Baylor's prose-poem as simple and powerful as the clay pots, sings to. .

This is a beautiful book--in text, in illustration, in design, in concept. The warm earth tones are pleasing to the eye; they do not detract from the book's central messages: the value of historical-mindedness and respect for civilizations of the past. Though the book is intended for children, adults can glean quite a lot of educational treasure from it as well. I love the following soul-stirring statement from the book: "...every piece of clay is a piece of someone's life." A perfect reminder that, in the past, pottery was not only useful, it was highly personal and culturally meaningful. Pottery merged function with art. Without "libraries" of pottery surviving the centuries, we would have lost much human history.

Baylor's worthy book provides an intriguing introduction to basic archaeology, and it would be an appropriate supplement to any class and / or discussion about the cultures of the ancient Southwest or their art. I do feel, however, that most children under five years old might not understand / appreciate many of concepts well enough to make true connections with the story, especially if they are from a region other than the Southwest. Certain vocabulary words could be a challenge for these youngsters: desert, pottery, ancient, thousand, kneel, perky, speckled, polishing, tribe, fierce, canyons, ceremonies, etc. If I were selecting the target audience of children for this product, I would probably say 6 to 10 year olds rather than the given 4-8 year olds. But that's just my opinion! :)

Especially nice is the small map at the back, which shows where four prehistoric Native American cultures flourished: the Anasazi, the Hohokam, the Mimbres, and the Mogollon. The pottery of these cultures inspired the designs used in this book. My favorite illustrations are those of Kokopellie, the flute player, and the ones with celestial themes. Somehow, I found the bear-wrestling image rather funny! :) All in all, I am quite satisfied with this book--thought-provoking and inspiring.

People who actually craft pottery may enjoy this book because it recognizes and celebrates hand-made products.

This is a lovely little book to introduce children to Native American pottery and design. Told in a poetry style format, details the clay process and where we may find inspiration in the things around us. Teaches that you should respect things that are old, and that even broken pieces of old clay have value and can speak to you (or sing to you). Great book for the art classroom!

Really great book. Poetic. Beautiful, southwestern art. We have used this book for multiple interdisciplinary studies in our curriculum-history, art, poetry, dance etc.

Being a potter, I was drawn to the subject matter & captured by the poetry of the narrative. Beautiful book, with lovely evocative images. A great addition to any collection of children's books.

As an art teacher who does clay with all ages, this book is one of my absolute favorite things to read to ALL ages who do clay. It is a beautiful story and eloquent and meaningful way to explain the lasting properties of clay and the meanings it can hold. I LOVE IT! It's in my teacher's "Must Have" toolbox for art teacher books for kiddo's!

Beautiful illustrations and nice story that I bought for an adult pottery friend

This is a cross-curricular book for language, writing, cultural studies, history, art...

Somewhere in moving classrooms, I lost my Byrd Baylor collection. So I bought this book for myself. For my own pleasure.

This is an excellent book for anyone interested in the AMERICAN INDIAN POTTERY.
