    The Magic Porridge Pot starts with a poor, young girl alone in the woods. She is very hungry and has nothing to eat. However a mysterious old lady gives the young girl a mysterious pot. With the words “cook little pot, cook” the pot would magically produce porridge, but you had to say “stop little pot, stop” to make it stop cooking. And so with the pot the girl and her widowed mother had more than enough food. However, when the young girl left on an errand, the mother made the pot start cooking but forgot the words to make it stop. Eventually the house was full of porridge and it ran out onto the street. Finally the daughter came home and told the pot to “stop little pot, stop!” There was so much porridge left over in the town the local restaurant served it up to customers for a long time. This Ladybird book is great fun with a creative plot. I like the idea of having a magic pot and not having to do any cooking. The magic element, also with the specific commands, makes the story exciting for younger readers. Imagining the town full of porridge is quite humorous. Good illustrations add to the fun feel of the story.KS1Children could be asked if they had a magic pot what would it make, they could come up with their own magic instructions. Alternative endings could be made or children could make themselves their own character in a story based on the plot. Instructional writing on how to use a Magic Pot is useful. Looking at speech marks on the pages is an idea, children could make or speak dialogue of themselves if their pot was overflowing. Sequencing is another possibility or summarising what happened.

    This story tells how a pot that makes porridge when you ask it too, and stops when you ask it too. A little witch gave it to a poor young girl who took it home to her mother. They were never hungry again. But one day when the girl went for a walk, he mother was hungry and had some porridge however she couldn't figure out how to stop it! So it just kept on going and going until it filled the house, the street, and even the town! The daughter is able to help her mom make the porridge stop; they now have PLENTY to eat!
