Ms. Drawdy selected The Keeping Quilt which tells the story of a young Russian immigrant who migrated to America with only a dress and a babushka. When she outgrew her dress, her mother used it to begin stitching a quilt. Over time, she added to the quilt using the little girl's clothing as she continued to outgrow them, as well as articles of clothing from other family members back home in Russia. The quilt was passed down through their family for almost a century and symbolized enduring love and faith. Ms. Drawdy said the children were very inquisitive and many shared stories about their own families.
Chairman Taylor selected the book The American Flag which teaches the history and heritage of American symbols such as the U.S. Flag and the bald eagle, and explains why these symbols represent America. Chairman Taylor was impressed by the children's knowledge of our country's history and how each symbol represents our freedom.
