This story is about a man, Mr. Haktak, who digs up an old brass pot in his garden. Little does he know that it is a magic pot; so whenever something gets thrown into it, twice as many would come out!
I would say this book could be for 2nd and 3rd graders learning about doubles in math! My CT read it to her class during my pre-professional block observations and the students enjoyed it a lot! As an activity to compliment the book, you have the students draw what they would throw into the pot and then tell how many more come out.
