A Coretta Scott King Award winner for non-violent social change. This story is very touching as it follows a connection between a young girl, her mother and her grandmother. The cross-generational understanding and appreciation would be a natural connection to make with many of our students who are used to having grandparents around. It's interesting to see how time is important in the book since it takes a year to collect the pieces that will become part of the quilt. It would be interesting to have students identify items that would be important in their families, possibly make a quilt or a drawing that get's connected like a quilt. A great story for the beginning of the year to get to know students or during a family unit.
