Karla's grandmother made a wonderful quilt with scraps of fabrics entwined with the family's history. And the incredible, fun part is that the quilt, named Mooshka, actually tells Karla the stories. Each fabric has a different voice and tells wonderful stories about how Karla's grandparents met or how her mother broke her toe. When Karla's little sister, Hannah, moves into her bedroom, Mooshka stops telling stories. Finally, Karla wraps her sister and herself in the quilt and shares the stories she has learned from her quilt. Very sweet, touching, and a beautiful illustration of an important sister bond.

I loved the vibrant art and the borders that emphasize the quilt narrative. Recommended for new big sisters and children ages 4 - 6.
