    • Debbie W.

      "The Keeping Quilt" by Patricia Polacco. A family friend gave my children several Patricia Polacco books because she loves them so much. Now I love them too! This is the first one she gave us. It is the story of a quilt that traveled with a family as they moved from Russia to the US, then was passed down for generations to remind them where they came from.

      "The Keeping Quilt" The author, Patricia Polacco, tells the story of how her family has passed down a quilt full of memories for over a century. The book is told through the life of a girl names Anna. This book not only connects to english, but also math. Students will want to ask tons of questions during this book. It is a good time for teachers to display how students should ask questions in their head or orally while reading.
