A beautifully heart-warming story about generosity rewarded with stunning illustrations by the award-winning illustrator Elena Odriozola.

Synopsis

The Story Blanket by Ferida Wolff, Harriet May Savitz

Babba Zarrah has a beautiful woollen sitting blanket, which the children sit on to listen to her stories. When she realises the villagers need new clothes, Babba Zarrah begins to unravel her blanket in secret to make them. But when the villagers discover Babba Zarrah's secret, they decide to give Babba Zarrah a surprise in return.

Reviews

Booklist From the spare wood floor and the children clustered in anticipation on the blanket under a potted indoor tree comes a warm invitation to enjoy this sweet story again and again. School Library Journal A warm-hearted story about caring and sharing. Guardian
