    1 thought on “Cassie's Word Quilt

    1. This book only showed words and pictures of objects in a scene. There was no story plot. This would be good for students that are trying to identify objects with their names.This book was hard to use in my class because they are above that and there was nothing to talk about because there was no storyline.

    2. I really love the work of Faith Ringgold and making African American history available to kids

    4. Good for sharing with emergent readers because of its letters of the alphabet and labels for the objects in Cassie's world, this picture book doesn't have much of a storyline. The brightly-colored folk art illustrations feature Cassie showing off the sights in her Harlem home. I like how the book starts with her room, her apartment, and then moves into the block on which she lives, always spreading out as though her world is growing ever-larger. I also love the quilt patterns woven into the book [...]

    5. Young children and early readers will delight in visiting Cassie’s everyday world, as she takes them on a quilt by quilt patchwork tour of her bedroom, apartment, school and more. Patches depict each of the words, while the following page puts words and pictures together where they belong in each of her rooms. Black Issues Book Review: Ringgold, who is an artist and author of the Coretta Scott King Award-winning book Tar Beach, has created an engaging primer for children as young as 6 months t [...]

    6. Cassie's Word Quilt by Faith Ringgold is among our favorite books, the colors are bold and inviting the children can relate to living in an apartment. They can identify some of the things that are in her room even though some may ask what is a stereo? We have made word quilt in our classroom, we have done number quilt and color quilt all these activities were inspired by this book.

    7. This is a good book to use for an art project that would allow the children to express themselves and their lives. The teacher can read this book to them and then have them each make their own word quilt. Allow the children to use various materials and art supplies. After they make their word quilt they can write about what the places, people, and things they drew.

    8. This book takes the character of Cassie from the book Tar Beach and uses her to introduce words to young children. I have seen other books do the same thing a little better, What saves this book is the artwork by Faith Ringgold.

    9. Meh. We get a couple lines and then a bunch of sort of like flashcard images and then a 2-page spread with all the items those ~flashcard were drawn from (labeled with text), so I guess it could be good for kids learning vocabulary, but I wasn't particularly into it.

    10. This is from the author of Tar Beach. I love the illustrations. This is a great book for early word recognition.

    11. This is an easy read book. This book is Cassie showing us her home. While she does this, she shows a picture of each object and then we see a scene of her home with everything in its place.

    12. Cute picture book for early readers learning new words in print. Probably helps the cute factor if you know Cassie from other Ringgold books.

    13. The connection to quilts isn't very evident other than the quilt frames on some pages. Good for beginning readers for the labels on the pictures of things in Cassie's life.

    14. A book that shows pictures of various things in Cassie's world. Much like a Richard Scarry book, but without the story line.Good for ELL?
