A Name on the Quilt: A Story of Remembrance
Jeannine Atkins, Tad Hills (Illustrator)
Reading Level: 4 - 8 years
Several months have passed since Uncle Ron died, and Lauren's family and Ron's friends are making a quilt panel in his memory. As they select fabric for the letters of his name, they talk about the things that made Ron special. And at the end of the day, Lauren wraps herself in the quilt panel the way Uncle Ron used to wrap her in his arms. A moving story of remembrance for friends and family of anyone who has been lost to AIDS. Full color.
