really liked it
bookshelves: final, historical-fiction

This book gives and idea of the hard ships settlers faced during the westward expansion. I loved how the young girl collected scraps of fabric to make a quilt at the end of the journey. Each scrap reminded her of a specific experience she had on the trip to Oregon. Since I am a scrap booker, I love to collect things that will help remind me of important times in my life. I plan on arranging my students work in a scrapbook that is meaningful to them. I would read this book to 1st through 3rd graders or any grade that is studying the westward expansion.
