In essence, this story is about the constancy of motherly love, even when everything else in the world seems to change. The quilt, crafted by a mother's loving hands, wraps the child in love both physically and metaphorically. The story follows the quilt from it's creation in pioneer days, through to its restoration in modern times. It also follows two girls through the experience of moving, one in a wagon, one in a moving van. We see that ours is not the only generation that has had to cope with changes and transitions, and we see that mothers have always comforted their children by rocking them. Of all the books I read to my daughter, this is the one book that I can't get through without choking up. At first, I couldn't figure out why this story seemed to touch me so deeply. In time, I came to see that the importance I attach to this story reflects the importance I attach to rocking my daughter, and my hope that she will see my love as all-encompassing, and permanent.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It is wonderful to step back in time and find a book that you used to read to your child as a young girl and find it again. I read this to my daughter several times as a young girl in the 1980s. Now she is 27 and I started to think of this book. It is about a little girl who was given a quilt made by her mom. She goes through alot with this quilt. Eventually they move and the quilt is left behind. Animals make it their home and young animals are born on top of it...it weathers alot of wear and tear. Eventually another family moves in and another little girl loves the quilt and the mom is able to repair it so it is loved by her daughter....The pictures are beautiful by Tommie dePaola and the story lovely and simple...I am so glad I was able to find it on Amazon. My daughter loved the gift.

This story helped my child cope with fears through several of our family's moves. The simple story was soothing, and we love the artwork. My favorite part of the story is how the quilt is passed on in the family to comfort another generation during transitions.

I read this to my daughter many times when she was younger. She loved this story as it reminds you of the things you love the most, like love, warmth and family.
