December 2010 storytelling around the book:

“Full Belly Bowl” by Jim Aylesworth & Wendy Anderson Halperin

Saturday, December 18th 2010

At 11 a.m. – English version (All in English)

At 12:30 p.m –English version with some Spanish to help understand

“What on earth is a Full Belly Bowl?” the very old man wonders — but he soon finds out. No matter how much he eats from it, the bowl magically refills itself. For the first time in a long time, the old man isn’t hungry. Then he discovers that the bowl can refill itself with other things — even his one copper coin — and now it looks like he’ll never want for anything again!

His excitement makes him careless, however, and as he hurries off to spend some of his new wealth, he leaves the bowl right side up. And who can say what might get into the Full Belly Bowl in his absence?”

From Simon & Schuster.
