The Little Pot book with a pot full of summertime fun makes a great end-of-year gift for teachers.

In the inspirational children’s book, The Little Pot, the potter creates a vessel. This vessel is eager to discover its purpose. With each item it holds, it wonders if this task is its purpose. Holding papers makes it feel smart. Holding coins makes the little pot feel rich. However, both of these items are not what the potter allows the clay vessel to keep. Then, the potter puts dirt inside the little pot. The clay vessel now wonders even more what its purpose is. Unbeknown to the little vessel, the potter has planted something in the soil and it is beginning to grow something inside. Eventually, the plant blooms beautiful flowers. Is its purpose to be pretty? Not exactly. The flowers do not last. Ultimately, they turn to fruit and the vessel realizes its purpose does not come through what it holds, but from what is produced through it.

The little pot becomes a vessel to grow fruit. Your teacher will love Little Pot. She will read it to her class for years to come and remember you and your child too. When searching for the best teacher gift ideas end of year, consider giving The Little Pot book. Pair it with a clay pot filled with things your teacher can use to relax during their summer break too.

Another book that makes a great end-of-year teacher gift is The Tea Pot. In this book, the potter continues to grow fruit through Little Pot as he makes more vessels from clay. As other vessels are made, Little Pot watches and begins to compare himself to them. One day the potter makes a vessel that will serve a different purpose. It is a teapot. As the potter makes tea inside this vessel, Little Pot wonders if the teapot is better. The teapot makes a delicious tea. However, when the potter continually pours out the liquid and picks the fruit, the vessels become frustrated. Selfishly, they want to keep their fruit and tea. The Potter allows it. Eventually, the fruit rots and the tea spoils. Finally, the vessels realize that they need the potter and ask him to clean and prune them. He does, and the vessels can now serve others.

There is little more relaxing than a cup of tea. Give your teacher this book with a recipe for a summertime tea drink. If you want, you can pair it with a teapot and some coconut teacups.

The Oil Lamp book makes an excellent teacher gift idea too.

In the third inspirational children’s book, Tea Pot and Little Pot have learned to serve the potter and others. Likewise, their relationship with the potter continues to grow. Then a potter creates a small oil lamp. The purpose of this vessel is to shine a light on the other vessels. The potter knows that a storm is coming and that a light is needed. The new clay vessel, however, is too shy to shine its light and hides under other vessels. When it finally does become bold enough to shine, it flares up and burns the other vessels. After hearing the testimonies of Little Pot and Tea Pot, the oil lamp has the faith it needs to shine brightly for the potter.
