The Crazy Quilt is the story of a young bear named Tayna and her discovery of the family quilt. Tayna’s mother explains that every square was stitched together using fabric from family members. Children easily relate to Tanya as she begins secretly searching around the house collecting her family’s favorite pieces of clothes to create her own quilt. Children will find the fun and silly book easy to read and learn a little bit about quilting. The illustrations are filled with bright water colors with a faded background. The full page illustrations contain explicit and engaging details of Tayna’s home. The Crazy Quilt is a compelling story in few words with familiar repetitive rhythm patterns and beautiful illustrations. Although the illustrations are beautiful, the story would be enhanced if there was more character analysis. ( )
