Jerry Pinkney's illustrations are so warm and mellow, underlying the theme. You get the feeling that he's been there.
The story will appeal to a wide age range. It's simplicity will appeal to the very young, while the main character is a pre-teen. And, if you happen to be a grandmother.....you will relate as well; mothers too.
The books is wonderful and tells a lovely story of a family and the tradition of quilt making. The artwork is great and my little one enjoyed the story very much. It kept her attention. The book and story opens up the possibility of so many projects and lesson ideas for little ones. I definitely recommend this book.
