Summary

Little Maya has a special blanket that Grandma stitched with her own two hands. As Maya grows, her blanket becomes worn and frayed, so with Grandma's help, Maya makes it into a dress. Over time the dress is made into a skirt, a shawl, a scarf, a hair ribbon, and finally, a bookmark. Each item has special, magical, meaning for Maya; it animates her adventures, protects her, or helps her in some way. But when Maya loses her bookmark, she preserves her memories by creating a book about her adventures and love of these items. When Maya grows up, she shares her book -- Maya's Blanket - La manta de Maya -- with her own little daughter while snuggled under her own special blanket.

Notes

Inspired by the traditional Yiddish folk song Hob ikh mir a Mantl (I had a little overcoat).
