As we head into February, Black History Month & Aspenne's birth month - we decided it would be a great time to feature some of the great titles we're reading!
On Day 3, we're reading:
Pearl and her Gee's Bend Quilt by Tangular A. Irby, illustrated by India Sheana
When Pearl schedules a playdate with her friends Sallie and Ella, they have no idea they're about to travel back in time to Gee's Bend, Alabama to discover the origin of the beautiful quilts in Grandma's house. It doesn't take long for the girls to learn Grandma's quilts are more than pretty pieces of fabric stitched together to keep them warm; the history behind the family treasures is rich and bursting with love.
Pearl and her Gee's Bend Quilt is a family story, just like ours! Super knowledgeable about her family history, Pearl shares all she knows about quilting with her two friends. Pearl knowing and gloating about her family history is exactly why we opened Aspenne's Library with Down South for the Summer; so she can know some of our family history and be able to pass it on. Aspenne loves the story, the bright colors and even more so loves the coloring and activity book that matches!
Enjoy Pearl and her Gee's Bend Quilt
