A Marvelous Story,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Story Blanket (Hardcover)
Great for reading or telling. Ages 5-7 are ideal audience, but the book is truly apporpriate for older children and adults, as well.
This is a heartwarming story, a tale of love and gemerosity. Evocative images, captivating illustrations and concise but lovely text will generate wide appeal. An old woman in a small village gathers the neighbor children on the story blanket in her humble garden for an afternnon of tales. Stories and knitting, stories and knitting...they are her life.
When she sees a child with a hole in the toes of his sock, the woman uses just a little corner of the story blanket to secretly knit a new pair of socks for the boy. So begins a journey of loving sacrifices that spread througout the village.
