Reviews - What do customers think about The Quilt Story?

The Quilt Story  Feb 8, 2007
This is a wonderful story to share with children. It tells a history story. It shows how much love and time it takes to make a quilt. It shows how different generations view the importance of a quilt. It just isn't for keeping warm. My day care children loved how much the mother's cared for the children by making or repairing the quilt. My day care children and I made a quilt for our day care room. It is a very important item in the room.
Good illustrations!  Jan 10, 2007
This is a great, fairly quick read for a unit on quilts or family history. I have used it for both.
Sweet story  Jul 7, 2006
My 4 year old son loved this book so much when we checked it out of the library, that I had to buy one for him. He now asks for his quilt every night and settles in for the night faster. It is a gentle story of love that readers of all ages will enjoy.
One of my childhood favorites  Apr 23, 2005
This was one of my favorite bedtime stories when I was a girl. The story was very comforting. The text is rythmic adding to the plot's emphasis on continuity. The illustrations fit the story well.
The Quilt Story  Mar 10, 2003
The Quilt Story is another one of Tomie dePaola's books. This one is about a little girl named Abigail whose mother sews her a quilt. The girl loves the quilt, and takes it everywhere. One day, the girl's family moves to a new home, and the quilt comforts her with thoughts of her old home. Then the quilt is packed into the attic, where a racoon and a family of mice bed in it. A long time later, a girl find the quilt, and her mothers sews it to like new. The girl's family then moves, and once again the quilt is a comfort to a girl in a strange new place. Tomie dePaola does a wonderful job illustrating this book, and it is well written by Tony Johnston.
