I don't have those, but I have quite a few other children's books dealing with the subject of quilts. One of my favorites is Sam Johnson and the blue ribbon quilt. It is nice to see a book about sewing with a male protagonist. Very rare. Good book anyway though.

It was my plan for my 4 almost 5 year old to go through our units of study and for each one do a very simple quilt block relating to each unit. Then I would put them all together for a wall quilt. However that did not happen with us being sick for over a month, me getting pregnant and then losing the baby. So we will be doing this next year for kindergarten. When I say simple blocks I mean simple. Whether using a fabric that has a print on it for the subject or letting her glue some appliques on and I sew them on later or her sewing button on or doing some straight stitching to bind squares together. Very simple stuff to get her interested in sewing. By the way we homeschool.
