The Quilt (2004), by Gary Paulsen

Paulsen - QuiltThis is the third story Paulsen has written about his early life with his grandmother. It is a gentle, realistic story of a six-year-old boy helping his grandmother and her pregnant young friend on a farm in the woods of Minnesota during World War II, when the men were all away fighting. While an interesting and warm story, this feels more like a nostalgic journey for Paulsen than any attempt at telling the story to a reader. More interesting for biocriticism, perhaps, than as a story for young readers, although it is written for quite a young readership.
