Book Review: Grandmother Winter

December 29, 2014

Grandmother Winter by Phyllis Root
From Miss Carole at Main Library

Here's another review from Miss Carole!

"Grandmother Winter by Phyllis Root is wonderfully written book. Its quiet text and smooth words are best read aloud. The story tells of a Grandmother who puts a little magic into the quilt she makes every autumn. She stuffs it full of goose feathers and on the longest night, she shakes her quilt and it begins to snow."

Here at the library, we "have many more fine books by Phyllis Root. I’d recommend: One Duck Stuck, Scrawny Cat and Oliver Finds His Way.

"Beth Krommes beautifully illustrates books using a scratchboard and watercolor technique. Check out these titles to see more of her greatly detailed illustrations: The House in the Night, The Hidden Folk and Swirl by Swirl."

Thanks, Miss Carole! What a great book! Learn more about author Phyllis Root or visit illustrator Beth Krommes' website. You can also explore quilt printables and information, story quilts, and other quilt activities to go along with Grandmother Winter.
