Fire Up Inferring with The Bedspread
First of all, my book is a mess! The pages are literally falling out, there are stains all over it from its years at the library, and there is no longer a cover. But just look at this title page. It is beautiful.
There are two characters in this book. They are sisters and they sit in a long bed all day long.
Maud and Amelia.
The entire story illustrates these two sisters decorating their white quilt. They are trying to make their childhood home and expect that it will look very symmetrical when it is complete. This is FAR from what it turns out to be!
I love this story. You learn so much about these two characters through the stitches that they sew. It would be a great book to use for inferring or to discuss the characteristics of Maud and Amelia.
