The Quiltmaker's Gift

I have recently read a book that is just perfect for this time of the year.  It is a delightful short story entitled "The Quiltmaker's Gift" by Jeff Brumbeau and illustrated by Gail de Marcken.  This book tells the story of a greedy king who wants more than anything else to have one of the quilts made by the old quiltmaker.  But will the king be able to pay the "price" she sets for her quilt?  Read it and find out what happens as the king goes about trying to get one of her quilts.  It is a short story suitable for all ages and shares timeless truths about giving and receiving.
