Touching & Appealing to all ages

Even at first glance, flipping thru the pages of this book, I couldn't help but be drawn to it. The illustrator has done an extremely detailed and colorful job on full page format. And then to combine that with a very meaningful story of someone who has not experienced the joy of generousity and eventually does made the entire book wonderful.

fun book for kids and adults

by marce on Oct 25, 2008

I learned about the book from one of my quilt magazines, checked it out at the library, and then ordered. I have since ordered two more as gifts and two of "The Quiltmaker's Journey" as well. The story is simple but moralistic, with engaging unexpected turns that keep anyone interested. The artwork is absolutely beautiful. My grandson enjoys looking for the quilt names or playing eye spy on the inside cover of "Gift." I recommend this book for anyone who likes fairy tales, quilts, or just spending time with children. It is a book I will keep in my library, even though I am in the process of downsizing all my possessions. Buy it, you won't be sorry, and if you are not a quilter - you may end up starting. It makes a great gift for a quilter too. There are also two books about making the quilts from this book that I would just as heartily recommend. The entire series belongs in the home of anyone who quilts or has children or grandchildren. The books all arrived in the condition stated and in a timely manner. I always go to Alibris first when I am looking for a book.

Charming

by GrandmaS on Apr 27, 2007

Coming from a family of quiters I was immediately captured by the title. I found this delightful little book to be a traditional "moral to the story" tale of kindness and social conscience. The illustrations are colorful and engaging. Buying it as a birthday gift for my 77-year old mother, I was not disapppointed and know this will be a cherished keepsake for her.
