A gorgeous, meaningful picture book. This story is a little long for the youngest listeners, but perfect for kindergardeners or those able to sit still long enough. A prequel to The Quiltmaker's Gift, this tells the story of how the Quiltmaker came to live her life of giving, and is meant to inspire each of us to add an element of giving to our lives. The pictures are rich and colorful, the story inspirational.
