Read this out loud to a classroom of first graders today. Based on an old Chinese folk tale, this story was completely new to these kids, and they were completely enthralled. When Mrs. O'Grady fell into the pot, there were audible gasps from the kids.

Two Classroom Uses:
[1] Have kids draw what they would throw into the pot if they had the chance. Just be prepared for lots of drawings of video games and moneymoneymoney!

[2] Read Lily Toy Hong's version of the tale, Two of Everything, which is set in China. Have the kids compare and contrast the two stories.
