Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
Essential qualities of family-love, cooperation, diversity, and responsibility-are woven through a tender story centered on the construction of a quilt. A contemporary family teams up to complete the squares and stitches that will preserve for the future that which was honored in the past. This lesson demonstrates affection and esteem across the generations.
