This book is an excellent read for all ages. This book about a greedy king and a kind old women prove to us that money cannot buy happiness. There were many things I enjoyed while reading this book. First, I enjoyed the illustrations. The book was so detailed with colorful lines and shapes as the quilt maker sewed her quilts. The As the book goes on, there are small images on each page previewing what is happening next. Each page as so many beautifully drawn images that make the characters look realistic. The second thing I enjoyed was the, characters. The characters were believable and well developed. The author did a great job at making two opposite characters come together to do good. The last element that made this book such a great read was the lesson learned. Throughout the book, you question how a kind old women could keep her word to such a nasty king. In the end, you realize that it is what is inside that matters and happiness is worth the most. ( )

Review/Critique:
A gifted quiltmaker sewed many quilts, but she would never sell them for she only gave them to poor people. The quiltmaker even told the unhappy king she would not make him a quilt until he gave away all of his things. Piece by piece the quiltmaker made the king a quilt as he gave away all of his possessions. Once he had given away of his things, he was happier than he had ever been because he had helped people.

This is good fantasy because the quiltmaker would not be in the clouds nor would her quilt fly. Also, the bear would not have freed her, instead the bear would have attacked her. ( )

The Quiltmakers Gift is a beautiful story that talks about greed and giving to others. There once lived an old quilt makers that lived in the mountains that made quilts for the poor. People in the town said her quilts were magic and once the greedy king heard about the quilt he demanded that she makes one for him. The king had every toy imaginable but he still wasn't happy, when the quilt makers told him she wouldn't make one for him he began to get very angry. She made a deal with him that if he gave away all of his things she would make him a quilt. Now at first the king said no and put her in a cave, but the king was having second thoughts about putting her in a cave so he kept moving her to places. He finally gave up and started to give away his things and when the quilt maker saw that she began making his magical quilt. Once he had nothing he realized how happy he was and even forgot about the quilt. But she stayed true to her word and gave him his quilt which made him feel even happier with life even though he had nothing. This is a good folktale book because it has a good life lesson of greed and how objects don't equal happiness. ( )
