Book Overview

Spanish translation of "Quilt Story", in which young Abigail watches her mother stitch a colorful quilt for her, and then takes it everywhere she goes. Years later, while in the attic, the quilt provides comfort to mice, a raccoon, and a cat. When the quilt is found by another little girl, her mother repairs it, and the quilt is loved again.

Wonderful story suited to many different topics

This is a wonderfully written story--clever rhyming and rhythms. My 4yo really related to the children in the story who had to leave their homes, because we recently moved. She really loved learning about people in different time periods. After we read the story, she wanted me to immediately read it to her again, and then play "the game," which means act out the story. She spent an entire afternoon pretending to be the girls in the story, which gave me a lot of opportunities to help her understand what was happening and teach her about why things were done differently in the two time periods.

The Quilt Story

This is a wonderful story to share with children. It tells a history story. It shows how much love and time it takes to make a quilt. It shows how different generations view the importance of a quilt. It just isn't for keeping warm. My day care children loved how much the mother's cared for the children by making or repairing the quilt. My day care children and I made a quilt for our day care room. It is a very important item in the room.

Sweet story

My 4 year old son loved this book so much when we checked it out of the library, that I had to buy one for him. He now asks for his quilt every night and settles in for the night faster. It is a gentle story of love that readers of all ages will enjoy.

One of my childhood favorites

This was one of my favorite bedtime stories when I was a girl. The story was very comforting. The text is rythmic adding to the plot's emphasis on continuity. The illustrations fit the story well.

Multi-generational story about a mother's loving embrace

In essence, this story is about the constancy of motherly love, even when everything else in the world seems to change. The quilt, crafted by a mother's loving hands, wraps the child in love both physically and metaphorically. The story follows the quilt from it's creation in pioneer days, through to its restoration in modern times. It also follows two girls through the experience of moving, one in a wagon, one in a moving van. We see that ours is not the only generation that has had to cope with changes and transitions, and we see that mothers have always comforted their children by rocking them. Of all the books I read to my daughter, this is the one book that I can't get through without choking up. At first, I couldn't figure out why this story seemed to touch me so deeply. In time, I came to see that the importance I attach to this story reflects the importance I attach to rocking my daughter, and my hope that she will see my love as all-encompassing, and permanent.
