Weaving

A book about the balance between resources and responsibility.

This coming of age story captures the moment in time when a child discovers that the outside world doesn’t always view him or his family the way that he does. A boy and his father take their handmade baskets into the city to sell, and the boy is called a ‘hillbilly’ by someone in town. This causes him to question his own future as a basket-maker.

When the weaver looks at her flock of sheep, she sees the rainbows that she weaves from their fleece. This book takes the reader on the journey that wool makes from sheep to finished object.
