Synopsis: The creator of Floss stitches together a comforting new baby gift - and a gentle tribute to family and home.
"There is a farm far away from the town, in a valley in the hills where
a river runs. . . . This is home, my little one. This is where we live."
As Mother sews a quilt for Baby, she quietly tells its story, patchwork square by square. There are the frolicking sheep and lambs, and there’s the collie, Floss, who helps Daddy herd them. There are the mare and her frisky foal, a flapping goose and her gosling, a cat curled up with her kitten. And when the story is done, there is a soft quilt to surround Baby with all the scenes of a family’s familiar world.
About the Author: Kim Lewis, the author-illustrator of FLOSS, JUST LIKE FLOSS, LITTLE BAA, and other picture books about farm life, lives on a sheep farm in England. Of A QUILT FOR BABY, she says, "From an early age, I remember my mother quilting. It seemed natural to use the idea of the quilt as an heirloom for passing on my hopes and feelings about farming."
