Overview

Karla loves her special quilt, Mooshka. But Mooshka is more than just a quilt.
Karla’s grandmother lovingly pieced Mooshka together using scraps of fabric from members of Karla’s family. Each square, or “schnitz,” shares a special memory of Karla’s ancestors and their lives. Mooshka speaks, comforting Karla at bedtime with whispered stories.
When new baby sister Hannah arrives, Karla’s routine is disrupted and Mooshka falls silent. Only when Karla shares Mooshka with her sister does the quilt begin to speak again and tell Hannah the treasured stories of her family.
