The Blanket of Miracles – La Cobija de Milagros
What makes an old tattered and torn, multicolored, woven blanket so special? Liv feels the love woven into the fabric as she hears the family story and the history of the Blanket of Miracles as told by her Nana. The blanket dates back several generations and comes from another country. This special bi-lingual English/Spanish story captures the sense of family and tradition and, most of all, love.
This story is based on a special family's history of events and a real blanket. Because of its age, the blanket isn't used on a daily basis but is still retrieved when there is a need. Whether for a headache or a heartache, the love in the blanket is still strong and palpable, waiting only to envelop the user with its warmth.
