About the Book-The Empty Pot by Demi
A long time ago in China there was a boy named Ping who loved flowers. Anything he planted burst into bloom.
The Emperor loved flowers too. When it was time to choose an heir, he gave a flower seed to each child in the kingdom. “Whoever can show me their best in a year’s time,” he proclaimed, “shall succeed me to the throne!”
Ping plants his seed and tends it every day. But month after month passes, and nothing grows. When spring comes, Ping must go to the Emperor with nothing but an empty pot.
Demi’s exquisite art and beautifully simple text show how Ping’s embarassing failure is turned triumphant in this satisfying tale of honesty rewarded.

What this book teaches-Honesty
My review of the book:
A beautifully illustrated story about honesty. The setting is in a village in China. When the emperor gives the children a challenge, all of the children lie except one, who is truthful and is rewarded for his honesty. The message is to be honest and do your best.
