Synopsis by Alice Day
A quilt can be more than a bed covering; it can hold a family's memories, as a child discovers when she helps her grandmother piece together a patchwork quilt. Children are shown in a class for quilt-making at the Boston Children's Museum in Reading Rainbow: Patchwork Quilt. The family theme is explored further as host LeVar Burton visits an Italian-American family that offers food made by hand in their store. The importance of families is also a dominant factor in the choice of books for review -- Being Adopted by Maxine B. Rosenberg, Angel Child, Dragon Child by Michele Maria Surat, and The Two of Them by Aliki.
