The Quiltmaker's Gift Reviews
The Quiltmaker's Gift was my daughter's favorite book so I recently bought two copies as gifts for her teachers who are expecting. I was reminded of why this book is so special. The quilt maker is a strong, fearless, and insightful women who helps the selfish king learn the values of compassion and selflessness. Through beautiful illustrations, the story vividly shows readers of all ages the power of standing up for one's principles and the hidden rewards of giving and caring about others.
One of the favorite books in our house for our 4 year old. She is now able to follow longer stories and this seems to be just the right length for her. A chance for much more detail and discovery that shorter books written more for toddlers. Amazing illustrations, so much color and detail. There is so much to look at and discover on each page. The overall message about the joy of giving to others in need and not holding onto possessions just for the sake of having things is perfectly written about. The book has prompted may questions from my daughter (4) about giving, those less fortunate, homelessness and charity. She even decided to donate some of her saved change to a local animal shelter since she "didn't need it all". A great way to introduce those type of topics/discussions to younger children without being overly sad or heavy. A must for any family library.
The story of The Quiltmaker's Gift stands as one of my favorite stories which touches my heart gently, deeply, simply, truthfully - it's better to give than to receive. Beautiful, colorful, fanciful drawings let me enjoy something new each time I look at this book to read the story again. I was happy to find it downloadable on Amazon so I could sync it to my PC and use it on the "big screen" for classroom Read To Kids Day activity.
A wonderful story with amazingly detailed illustrations. I think we could read this for years and always find something new in the illustrations. My 10 year old loves it.
This is a story i love and so full of color and detail! I purchased a used book but it is in good enough condition to share with others.
This is a wonderful, heartwarming story about kindness, generosity and the joy of sharing...perfect for children and adults. The story is richly and colorfully illustrated, and the artwork is a joy in itself! I made flannel baby quilts for each of my grandchildren for Christmas, and am including a copy of this book with each one. I had to get one for me as well, because I hope to read it to my grandchildren myself!
I bought this book for myself in the hopes that someday I would have a grandchild to read it to. Needless to say, grand-baby isn't here yet, but is on the way. In the meantime I purchased a second copy to start a library for a great niece. The Quiltmaker's Gift allows young readers to learn empathy as they learn the value in giving of themselves. The story inspires an interest in traditions that not only provide a creative outlet, but also connect generations. My grand-baby on the way is a boy. He may very well find a copy in his library one day. Hobbies, values, generosity, empathy, creative outlets, this book is high on my list as a positive encounter for children.
Beautiful story about discovering the joy of giving. I am a pastor and read this as a sermon one Sunday in my church, and got many great comments from adults and children alike. Lovely to own or give as a gift for all ages.
