Just look at the cover to see why this 2011 Caldecott Honor Book grabs children's attention: the strong and beautiful painting appeals to children's love of getting their own hands in the clay while introducing them to the compelling figure of Dave--an early American artist, poet, and slave. I use the book to help students learn about the full process of ceramics--from digging the clay to the final firing. The end pages tell what is known of Dave's extant pots and the poetry he wrote on some of them. I wish there had been a brief glossary of ceramic terms (I'm not sure children will understand the role of a "pug mill" in the story or in ceramics, for instance)--but that's a small quibble.
