  5. Jeannine – get it at the library or buy it if you can. It is one of those books that you would like to own.It is wonderful!Susanne – it’s called The Quiltmaker’s Journey. I have it too although I haven’t read it yet. I received a $1500.00 grant so we have quite a few new books – it was really fun going to Indigo with a $1000 cheque and I still have $500 left to spend!!Sue – I think that the reading level of this book is 9-12 but the interest level is designated 4-8.I’m sure your grandson would enjoy it. I think this is one of those books that appeals to all age levels. It also adresses materialistic attitudes in a powerful way. It is a wonderful readaloud and there are so many quilt activities that extend the text.Adrienne – I agree – The illustrations are phenomenal.

    I just got a great online coupon from Borders Bookstore today. This looks great for seven yr old grandson! He’s reading at third and fourth grade levels right now. Thanks for the suggestion.
