    This is a cute book of a poor family who finds a lucky pot that produces two of everything. They begin to produce a lot of money from the pot, and then the woman falls in and out comes two of her. The husband falls in and out comes two of him too. The pairs become best friends and have matching everything. This is a chinese fairytale. It would be a good book to integrate into learning about other cultures because the illustrations had alot of chinese decoration.

    This is a funny Asian folktale about a couple who is barely making it by. The husband finds a pot when he is planting his vegetable seeds and brings it home. The couple then finds out it is a magic pot that makes a copy of whatever you drop into it. Unfortunately that includes people, Mrs. Haktak falls in and two of her come out then Mr. Haktak falls in and two of him come out. They realize that two are better than one so they begin to make two of everything and live happily ever after.

    Mr. and Mrs. Haktak were old and they did not have much money. They counted on the harvest in order to make money. One day Mr.Haktak was digging in his garden he came across of big pot and brought it to his wife. His wife was looking inside when she lost her hair pin. Instead of pulling out one hair pin she pulled out two! They figured out that whatever you put in the pot it doubled. They put their gold coins in and became rich. Everything was going great until Mrs.Hatak fell in the pot and out came two of her! Then Mr.Hatak fell in and out came two of him! OH! what are they are going to do now? Well they made an identical house for the other Mr. and Mrs. Hatak and they all became good friends. This is great to show children when teaching about folklore its a very funny story. I really enjoyed it and even laughed myself!

    Two of Everything by Lily Toy Hong is a retelling of a Chinese folktale. It is the story of a poor old couple who come across a magical pot. While digging in his garden Mr. Haktak comes across a large pot. He decides to bring it home it home to his wife so that she can find some use for it. As Mrs. Haktak is inspecting it her hairpin falls into the pot. When she reaches in to retrieve it she finds two identical hair pins and two of Mr. Haktaks coin purses that he placed in the pot for safe keeping on the way home. Recognizing the power of the pot the Haktaks begin to throw all of their possessions into the pot. Overjoyed with their finding, Mrs. Haktak gives the pot a hug when Mr. Haktak kicks the door open causing her to fall in. Mr. Haktak now has two wives who are very angry with him and as he tries to back away he too falls in the pot. Now there are two Mr. Haktaks and two Mrs. Haktaks. The Haktaks live happily ever after in their identical homes and identical clothes. The only difference is that in one house there was a big brass pot. Besides on the flyleaf there is no mention or citation for the original source of the folktale. The plot is very simple and very direct. The simple telling of the story, the humor, and adorable pictures make this story appealing to children of all ages. There isn't a moral telling to this story but it is sure to get kids laughing and asking for it again. The illustrations and details are true to the culture and can be appreciated by children of all nationalities. Suggested grade level : 1-5.

    A delightful tale of an old Chinese couple and the magic pot they find in their garden. The pot doubles everything that goes in it, making the poor couple rich. But then, when they both fall in, they have more to deal with. The pictures and language are perfect with a happy cheerful tone. Very well done.

    This is one of my favorite books to use in the classroom. I used this book when I taught second grade. We did many inferring and writing activities based on the characters of this book. I gave this book five stars because of how much I used it. It is great for teaching figurative language and min idea. I will use it for years to come.
