Jamie and her grandmother are making a woven memory of all the wonderful and sad things that have happened in their lives. So they choose colours that will remind them of special events - green for the farm, orange for the fruit from their trees, turquoise for the fish in the lake and indigo for the night skies. There is also black and grey for the sad times and blues and reds for the special members of the family. A beautiful story of special shared times in a family. There is also a page at the end of the book where children can follow simple instructions to make their own special weaving.
