This excellent book shares what it means to have people in your life who aren't your biological family but who care about you and treat you kindly. It also gives a good sense of what it means to be an apprentice and how long it takes to learn a craft.
Linda Sue Park came to my elementary school years ago, but I still remember her and her wonderful talk on her books and how to write her own. And obviously, because of this visit, I read A Single Shard and it truly was fantastic book. Highly recommended!
This was a really good book. It is an easy read, so it is ideal for the youth ages. It portrays the life of an orphan boy living in Korea, and his dream of becoming a potter himself. I would recommend this book.
