The Quilt by Gary Paulsen

In this companion to The Cookcamp, 6 year old Gary is with his grandmother.  A cousin goes into labor with her first baby, and every female relative in the area comes to help out.  They also work on a quilt that has everyone in the family in it.  As they work on this quilt, they tell stories about the people.
It. Was. Wonderful. I loved the stories, and it made me remember my precious grandmama.  She used to tell me such great stories of her family.  My mother has a great memory and is full of those super stories as well. This multi-generational story really spoke to me, and I highly recommend it.  It was a short book and took a short time to read it.
LOVED IT.  Book 12
