"The Quiltmaker's Journey"

Last week we got a lovely book from the library, “The Quiltmaker’s Journey” by Jeff Brumbeau and illustrated by Gail de Marcken.  I always love finding children’s books that are well-written and well-illustrated—the combination is surprisingly rare.  The story of an isolated girl who doesn’t know the struggles of the poor in the world and once she her eyes are opened how she finds a way to help, is touching and inspiring.

I look forward to reading another book by this duo, “The Quiltmaker’s Gift.” And, happily, a quick search for this book turned up a great homeschool lesson plan for it!!  I can’t wait to do this with the boys.
