Description

When Clay Sings is a picture book that is really a basic introduction to archaeology. Pieces of broken pots are scattered over the desert hillsides of the Southwest. The map included in this picture book indicates the four ancient cultures are the Anasazi, the Hohokam, the Mimbres, and the Mogollon. Author Byrd Baylor explains that each pottery shard tells a story and contains the spirit of the traditional potter who created it. Byrd Baylor's prose-poem introduces young readers to the world of pottery-making as she describes the designs and asks readers to imagine who made these early pots.
