"Yes, me, Cassie Louise Lightfoot, only eight years old and in the third grade and I CAN FLY."-Faith Ringgold's Tar Beach
My second and third graders made fantastic story quilts from construction paper and magazine scraps based on the book and artwork by Faith Ringgold. The wonderful book tells the story of a little girl who dreams of flying over New York City, and owning all that she can see. "Tar Beach" is their rooftop where their meet their neighbors and have picnics. Below is one of the sweet, imaginative story quilts by my students.
