The Napping Quilt
 

A Family's Story of Coming to America

Authored by Gary Dei Rossi
Illustrated by Michael Hirshon

"The Napping Quilt" is a sweet American story of courage and the yearning for a better life. Megan, a young girl, is ready to a nap at her grandmother's house and picks up the brightly colored quilt that her great grandmother made years ago while making the harrowing journey to America. Each square of the quilt tells a heart-warming story that illustrates the characteristics of hopefulness, determination, optimism and more. Experience the warmth, comfort, and love of an immigrant's story of coming to America.

The author is the son of an immigrant, was the first in his family to graduate from college and spent his entire career in education.

"The Napping Quilt" is the winner of the 2017-2018 "Legacy in Children's Literature Medal" - which recognizes a thoughtful and distinguished children's picture book that broadens the world for readers while acknowledging differences, acceptance and the ideals upon which the United States was founded.
