Abuela Makes a Quilt
A storybook about the bonding that can happen through art.
Together, read this story about Rosita and her Abuela, a quilter who sews a special quilt full of pictures that tell family stories. Rosita and Abuela admire the quilt, remember the stories, and create more memories.
Let children know that art can make important moments last longer and that it can help us feel close with people we love. Find a comfy spot to read together. After reading, share your own stories. Consider:
- Is there a piece of art that means a lot to you?
- Do you have a scrapbook or pictures of family memories?
- Is there a song, poem, or book that makes you really happy?
Then invite children to create a piece of art that tells an important family story.
