The Full Belly Bowl!

Hello! I really like The Full Belly Bowl story, and had great fun retelling it.

Jim Aylesworth is the author of the book where I found the basic idea for the story. He's written over 30 books:

Wendy Anderson Halperin was the illustrator for the book -- the illustrations are truly beautiful (so many details!).

I changed several details of the story in my retelling. If you read the book and watch Tales from Around the World to hear my version, please post a message and tell me what differences YOU found.

Here's a link to a page with fun activities relating to the story:

And here are two photos from the set:
