When reading this book, I made a text to text connection A text to text connection is when you relate one book to something else you have read in another book, journal, article, magazine, etc As long as you have read that piece of information, you can make a text to text connection My text to text connection happened on page 6 On page 6, the grandmother uses the word schnitz The use of another language mixed in with English words or phrases reminds me of another book I have read that also did th [...]

    4. This is a sentimental story, one that really emphasizes the importance of passing down family stories and history to a younger generation The narrative isn t too long and the illustrations are bold and bright Our girls loved the different patterns and colors of the schnitz and the shape of the little girl draped in the quilt reminded me of a matryoshka doll Overall, it s a nice tale and is certainly good for bedtime reading We enjoyed reading this book together.

    5. Mooshka celebrates quilting as both an art and as way to capture stories The blanket is compose of pieces that each tell a story The illustrations reflect a quilt like design It could be a great catalyst with a similar prop for telling stories that could be written stories It could have many potential uses in a classroom and would be a nice addition to a classroom collection.

    8. Rating 3 StarsAt bedtime, Mooshka always said, Sweet dreams First thing in the morning, Mooshka might say, Pancakes This is a story of a talking quilt, made by the main character s grandmother to tell the stories of the generations Quite a cute idea, I might add However, I m sad to say that the storyline simply does not live up to the uniqueness of that idea.I received Mooshka A Quilt Story from NetGalley for review The story s illustrations are made from pieces of quilt fabric and are bright, t [...]

    20. As a quilter it was assumed that automatically this would be a great match for our shelves and although it is a cute story about a girl and her quilt with vivid imagination flowing through every page I don t love it I m a pastel type quilt I suppose and this was just too bright for me Overall it s a neat concept though Thanks to Peachtree Publishers for loaning an electronic copy through Netgalley posted creativemadnessmama blog 2

    22. What beautiful art and a lovely story from Julie Paschkis I think this would be a good read aloud story the story of a little girl s favorite quilt, and the stories that each patch tells her Also a story of how the quilt and stories become a comfort to her new baby sister I would love to have art by Julie the illustrations in this book are fantastic, and colorful, and very folk art.

    23. Lovely and original new sibling story I love that not everything is explained in the end why doesn t Mooshka speak any Does the quilt really speak, or is Karla remembering her grandmother s stories The patterned borders were a little visually overwhelming at first, but the times I read this, the I appreciate them Also the family stories within the story are so wonderfully specific and individual.

    24. Karla s quilt, Mooshka, was made from old scraps of fabric by her grandmother Each scrap of fabric has a story, and Mooshka shares these stories with Karla.But one night, Karla s baby sister, Hannah, moves into Karla s room And Mooshka falls silent.Through brightly colored, richly textured illustrations, author illustrator Julie Paschkis unfolds the tale of what Karla and Mooshka did to keep the stories alive This is a heartfelt homage to the sisterly bond and the powers of sharing.

    25. One of our librarians gave us this when helping us get books featuring Q While Natalie wasn t that into it, I loved it I think it was still just a bit too complex for her I liked the focus on the colors But what was really awesome was the way the quilt told her stories connected with each fabric I really liked the mystical element A very sweet ending passing the quilt on to the baby, too.

    26. I really liked this book for it s narrative tale of the pieces of a special family quilt and it s beautiful illustrations It most certainly reminded me of Patricia Polacco s The Keeping Quilt, but I think this would be suited well for even younger readers as the story is not as dense and has a nice sibling element to it as well.

    27. This book wraps you up in warmth, like a quilt A young girl learns her traditions as a Jewish girl by hearing stories of quilt history by the quilt itself, a blankie named Mooshka But is it the quilt telling the tales of how it was passed down fromone generation to the nextor can she do the telling herself to someone in her own family Very profound and toasty with love Be happy

    28. This is a beautifully illustrated book about a little girl and her quilt The family stories that are told, she soon passes down to her sister, which comforts the baby like it does the little girl, Karla Family dynamics and history are a great theme for this book, and could lead to a unit of the student s own family histories.

    29. This story is about a little girl named Karla and her quilt When the little girl goes to bed at night, the quilt tells her stories of her ancestors It tells her stories because the quilt is composed of scraps of fabric from various members of her family past and present I love this story because it tells the importance of family and family history.

    30. There are so few story time appropriate books about quilts, but this is one It reminds me of A Quilt Story by Tony Johnston, but with the added element of introducing a new baby into a family I love that the quilt represents the family s stories, and that the older sister is able to pass them along to her younger sister to keep the tradition alive.
