Item Description...
Twirl and laugh and sing and dance your way through the rooms of the very small house, on the very grand hill, in the very small town in this beautifully written and colorfully illustrated family classic. Walk into the world of the very bouncy girl and her old, crooked grandmother. A world where rainbows appear on the walls and simple flower-gathering is a nightly ritual. A world where broken things are mended with the gentle breath of love...and they become a beautiful masterpiece for all generations to enjoy. A Thoene Family Classic

A Sweet, Comforting Lesson  Dec 6, 2007
From a message standpoint, this is a precious book complete with beautiful illustrations. How many of us don't need a fresh reminder that our broken pieces can be made into something beautiful? The little girl in the story is like so many children today who need to understand how love can put back together the broken pieces of mistakes and circumstances. This bouncing, twirling, laughing little girl learns a lesson of hope and forgiveness through the love of her crooked, shuffling grandmother when she breaks a precious vase. A timeless reminder of how fire and a breath of love can mend a mother's broken heart.

From a reader's standpoint, the book is somewhat confusing. According to this site, the target audience is children ages 4-8. The length of the book as well as the lyrical, musical style of the prose along with intended repetition such as "the very small house, on the very grand hill, in the very small town" support this by offering appeal to young readers. However, the real message of the book is for mothers--mothers with children who have broken their hearts and for children who have deeply wounded their mothers. The message of healing spans generations, but those who will find the book most comforting, are those who need to understand how sorrow and darkness can become something beautiful.

Children will most likely find large words such as "myriad", "profusion of opportunities", "sustained growth", and "stimulation of starting over" difficult to understand. It's a book for reading and discussion with a young reader, but not something most would read and comprehend on their own.

I give the book an A+ for the message and a B- for writing.
A classic your family will want to read again and again!  Jun 11, 2007
The beautifully illustrated story Vase of Many Colors is a treat for both eyes and heart--one that your entire family will treasure reading together. It's a poignant way to let all family members know that each person is treasured. Yes, you will all make mistakes, life will at times feel painful and broken, but out of those broken pieces can come a dazzlingly lovely "whole." A message that EVERYONE needs to hear. I just bought 10 copies to give to parents, grandparents, and for children's birthday gifts!
Beautiful!  May 13, 2007
I highly recommend this book. Its a children's book (though inspirational for adults as well) about a grandmother who loves her "dancing, singing, laughing" granddaughter and teaches her about gathering flowers, beautiful rainbows on the wall and ultimately about re-making things from broken pieces with a mother's love.
The author posted about her inspiration for the story at CurlingUp.
