Four generations in a Jewish immigrant family use the same fabric. First it's a babushka, then a quilt border, picnic throw, wedding canopy, baptismal wrap, tablecloth, pretend cape, comforter, etc. The red print fabric stands out on each page amidst brown tone drawings showing families in all stages of life, observance and celebration. (Ages 4-9)
