The Pot Bank. By Liang Yen, Lippincott, $2. This delightful picture book of a visit to a Chinese fair was written and illustrated by Liang Yen, a New York architect who grew up in China. The illustrations in blue and rust depict the many things which Dee-dee and his sister Bao did at the  air which funds from their “pot bank” (piggy bank) made possible. Although intended for preschool pupils, the book will prove useful in elementary-grade study of China because of the authentic pictures of typical dress and activities. Sturdily bound. — Mary P. Douglas.
