Wild Roses - Silk Collection - Pre-Wound Weaving Warp - Mulberry Silk
Nicole was born in Fall River, Massachusetts, with both parents in the arts—her dad was a designer and painter, and her mom was a fashion illustrator and art teacher. Wild Rose looks at it and feels the life and the peace contained within it. She asks her grandmother how she created it. Grandma tells her that she did all of the same things that Wild Rose did, only through her weaving instead of outside. As Wild Rose begins to understand how the rug is "a picture of life," she decides that she would now like to learn how to do it. Grandma tells her that now she is too busy and the two go outside to play under the rainbow that has risen from the storm.
The next day, they weave the rainbow into their rug. I love the bond that is being created between grandmother and granddaughter. That relationship is a special one and this made me miss my own grandmothers. Passing down traditions from generation to generation is something to be cherished. I also loved the connection between nature and art that goes into the weaving of the rug.
Both grandmother and granddaughter shared the same experience, though it manifested in different ways.

All Wild Rose wants to do is play outside in the storm. She believes anything and everything is better then weaving with her grandmother. When she finally sees the rug her grandmother made it is made into the rainbow. I love the connection that is made with the grandmother and granddaughter. The story is about passing down traditions and how nature is created through the story.
The illustrations are made with pastel colors and maybe water colors.
The text is very short and the pictures take up both pages. I would read this both to young children, but I do not think it would be very helpful in a classroom. It is a great book for children of the age of years old.
It teaches the child to respect the family tradition and spend time with your family. Aug 07, Kathy rated it really liked it. I downloaded this picture book to my Kindle to see what it would be like to read a picture book. My 5 year old thought it was fun for me to read to her from the Kindle.
