This is an incredible book to use for students learning vocabulary because the book takes a different strategy by making words into a quilt. This is a great book for meaning of words as well.

In this book we take the main character from Tar Beach and join her on her journey across harlem. as we see the images she has words to identify the objects. ( )

Cute picture book for early readers learning new words in print. Probably helps the cute factor if you know Cassie from other Ringgold books. ( )

Cassie takes us on a tour of her home, neighborhood, and school, dozens of new words are introduced with simple labels throughout. Story uses tier two words that would be appropriate for older children, while the big bright colors would be appealing to younger children.

This book gives information about what a little girl sees in her community such as her school and home. She puts these words onto a quilt. Some of the words included on the quilt include: apple, teacher, and classmates.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553112333, Paperback)

In Cassie's Word Quilt, a young African American girl takes early readers on a remarkable tour of her 1930s-era Harlem home, school, and neighborhood. The tour serves as a vocabulary jaunt, as well. Dozens of objects are clearly labeled; the youngest viewers of this big lap book can point to familiar images as older readers read the captions: "doll," "quilt," "father," "subway," "jump rope." Ringgold's vibrant art captures the excitement of urban life in an era gone by. Gorgeous spreads feature a richly textured quilt motif, with illustrations picking up on the patterns in the squares of fabric bordering the pages. Seldom have we seen a word identification book as artful as Cassie's Word Quilt.

Ringgold's other titles include Caldecott Honor Book Tar Beach (on which Cassie's Word Quilt is based), and companion volumes Counting to Tar Beach and Cassie's Colorful Day. (Baby to Preschool) --Emilie Coulter
