Pretty, but twee and incoherent/ illogical.  If everyone" in the walled town is so rich, why are the servants putting turkey legs in their pockets?  Even, why are there servants?   I like the book design, though, with lots of images on each page showing different goings on, or the same scene (as the primary pic) over a passage of time, etc." ( )

52 months- we loved the other Quiltmaker story and this one didn't disappoint either... And beautifully illustrated as well. ( )

A gorgeous, meaningful picture book. This story is a little long for the youngest listeners, but perfect for kindergardeners or those able to sit still long enough. A prequel to The Quiltmaker's Gift, this tells the story of how the Quiltmaker came to live her life of giving, and is meant to inspire each of us to add an element of giving to our lives. The pictures are rich and colorful, the story inspirational. ( )

Jeff Brumbeau's prequel to the best-selling THE QUILTMAKER'S GIFT, illustrated with Gail de Marcken's rich, sumptuously detailed paintings, will be embraced by new and old fans of the Quiltmaker.

Escaping from the protective walls of wealth and privilege, a young girl discovers the harsh world outside, where some people don't have as much as others.
