Overview

This 25th anniversary edition of a beloved and bestselling classic about family and tradition includes fifteen pages of bonus material.

“We will make a quilt to help us always remember home,” Anna’s mother said. “It will be like having the family in backhome Russia dance around us at night.”

And so it was. From a basket of old clothes, Anna’s babushka, Uncle Vladimir’s shirt, Aunt Havalah’s nightdress, and an apron of Aunt Natasha’s become The Keeping Quilt, passed along from mother to daughter for almost a century. For four generations the quilt is a Sabbath tablecloth, a wedding canopy, and a blanket that welcomes babies warmly into the world.

In strongly moving pictures that are as heartwarming as they are real, Patricia Polacco tells the story of her own family and the quilt’s further story that remains a symbol of their enduring love and faith. This anniversary edition includes fifteen pages of original material describing the quilt’s journey and its home at the Mazza Museum in Findley, Ohio.

    A beautiful story for all families!

    My daughter picked this off the library shelf and I cried the first time I read it to my children. The illustrations are simple, yet deep and emotional. I will be buying this for our home library, and also a second copy for my classroom.

    Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

    I think this book is a great story that tells how they kept their family close, even when they are in a whole other country. The illustrations showed just how the family felt. It also tells that even though Great-Gramma Anna died, she is still watching over them through the stitches of the quilt. All the first born girls after Anna got the quilt that she made. They would all preserve memories in the quilt to pass on to other family members. The quilt has been through a lot since Anna. It has become table cloths, tents, and capes. I highly recommend this book because it is a loving story.

    This story is a treasure to keep and share just as the title promotes.

    The Keeping Quilt delights in a fasion that never grows old. It tenderly guides you through the story of a family , although mislplaced, continues to keep it's memories locked in the patches of a quilt. Each patch holds a story re-told through the eyes its maker. Every word embraces family spirit and strength as the illustrations evoke love, warmth, laughter, as well as hardship. A wonderful stroll for the entire family.
