It tells the Nava legend of a young woman who asks Spider Woman for help, the spirit tells her that now she will be in charge of making blankets for her tribe with one condition, she should not do much of anything, the young woman accepts and gets to work. She tries to create such a beautiful and perfect blanket by taking days and a lot of effort for spider woman. In the morning her husband finds her on the floor without knowing what had happened, he takes her to hand trembler to find out what happened to her and they discover that the young woman's spirit is trapped in the blanket for not obeying Spider woman. This is a great book for children to read about mistery and the theme is that there are consequences for the decisions you make. ( )

Right now I'm just grateful to any story that's about things like blankets and the fuzzy borders between the human and spirit worlds and not, in the words of Orson Welles, toys that do terrible things to other toys. ( )

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE COLORS OF THE PICTURES IN THIS BOOK! I loved how the weaving woman disobeyed and created such a beautiful blanket. ( )
