The Blessing Cup

Patricia PolaccoUnknown‘s family history is reminiscent of Fiddler on the Roof  for kids. This beautiful book has everything you’d expect from Polacco, complete with gorgeous, mainly black and white, illustrations in pencil and marker. Key elements, such as the blessing cup, the fire and the special rug, are rendered in vibrant colour.

A worthy companion to The Keeping Quilt, The Blessing Cup packs in emotion and tradition.
