Quilt a Q

QuiltJPGI'm I love it when the weather turns cozy.

Cozy means quilts and hot cocoa.

Of course when I am wishing for cozy weather, my favorite quilt stories come to mind: The Keeping Quilt, by Patricia Polacco, Stitchen' and Pullin' by Patricia C. McKissack, Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt by Deborah Hopkinson, Luka's Quilt by Gerogia Guback.

And when I think about picture books, I think of all the simple crafts I enjoyed with my little ones, crafts that helped them to delight in the potential of language. So read a book and quilt a Q with your little one and embark on a literary tradition.

  1. Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for correcting my error that was a result of blogging late into the night! Of course I know this title… I have actually read your book to scores of children, including my four. My copy is well worn. In fact, your exceptional story is one that I would love to eventually include in an Earlybird collection.

  2. Hi! A quick correction: I think there is a book called The Keeping Quilt. But the title of my picture book is Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt. Thanks for including it!
