I loved this story as a kid, and still do... What I love most, is how the quilt finds itself loved through out its age and history, what became forgoten long ago in an atic becomes found again by another young girl, persumably 100 years later.Was this review helpful?

One of the Best
This is one of my favorite books. I love the way Tomie dePaola uses hundreds of subtle visual clues to enrich and explain Tony Johnston's simple, rhythmic narrative. Kids will be quick to notice the details and should be encouraged to make observations as they read the story. Smart parents and educators will take the time to ask questions on each page: 'What changes do you notice here? How is this room (these people, their clothes, her eye color, the quilt colors) the same or different? How are these people related? How do we know that time is going by?' From the many visual clues, the true story emerges, and its perennial beauty is likely to bring tears to one's eyes. The Quilt Story is a treasure.Was this review helpful?
