Pieces: A Year in Poems and Quilts

Winner of the 2001 Lee Bennett Hopkins Award for Children's Poetry!

Nineteen handmade quilts grace the pages of this collection of seasonal poems. Taking inspiration from the magic that is winter, spring, summer, and fall, and stitching together varied forms of poetry (including haiku) with something entirely her own, Anna Grossnickle Hines presents her vision of nature's year-round drama.  The author learned to quilt from her mother, and her talent and enthusiasm for the traditional craft are evident on every glorious page. A  fascinating note on the making of the quilts is included.

The illustrations "capture the circumscribed world of the preschooler while celebrating the joys to be found in daily events...Corey has parents who share household tasks to make his life, as well as theirs, not only secure but also fun. The book conveys the kind of marital respect which can exist within today's family with charm and vitality." Horn Book 9/86.
