sort of history of weaving; really nice - good information about groups and how their weaving differs from other areas ( )

The language of the book beautifully describes sounds, listening, and rhythms of weaving. Unfortunately the illustrations do not always match the text and left me feeling disjointed. For example text refering to "foot pedal" joins an image where a foot pedal isn't used. The "Clack. Clack. Swish - pull back" remind me of a large loom while the image shows a loom held in the lap, where the sounds would likely be absorbed into the weaver's clothing. ( )

Rhyming text and gouache illustrations using red, blue, black, and orangey-brown weave together effectively in this tale of textiles, with rich back matter.

Back matter: glossary, "explore more," author's note, illustrator's note. ( )
