Sonya Green, March 4, 2008 (view all comments by Sonya Green)
The truth behind this story is that giving is better for your happiness than taking. The story itself is full of fantastic read-out-loud folkloric vignettes and written in such a way that makes me feel like a storyteller.

The illustrations are incredibly rich and unlike most of the time, are as beautiful as I imagine them. There is a lot of detail, something that children can spend time looking at.

This is also a fantastic gift for quilters. Knowing how much time goes into a hand-made quilt, it's a good way to show that the creation is understood to be greater than the fabric its made from.
