Bowls of Happiness
Bowls of Happiness Bowls of Happiness Bowls of Happiness

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.

The lovable illustrations are coupled with photographs of porcelain art found in the Beijing 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.
