Have you seen this wonderful little book? It is perfect for sharing on Thanksgiving. The Quiltmaker’s Gift by Jeff Brumbeau is a beautiful story, both in its core message and visually stunning illustrations, of a greedy and dissatisfied king who learns the source of true happiness and the value of giving through a magical old woman who makes quilts “only for the poor or homeless.” (Read the full review here.)
It is the perfect Thanksgiving story to read to your kids (or to yourself) this holiday because its message combats the materialism that is so rampant in our society, especially this week with all of the Black Friday shopping that will be going on.
So get out there and buy this book! 🙂 Or borrow it from your library. You will not be disappointed.
I’m off to the kitchen for the day now. I cannot focus on anything else until the basic food needs of my Celiac Thanksgiving are met. Happy reading!
