This week, Amy reads Rainbow Weaver, written by Linda Elovitz Marshall and illustrated by Elisa Chavarri. This is an English/Spanish bilingual book, but we are only reading the English portion for this video.
Ixchel wants to become a weaver like her mother and the other women in her town, but there’s no thread to spare. But by looking at things just a little bit differently, Ixchel’s able to find the materials she needs–and clean up the local land as well!
Afterwards, Amy demonstrates how to create a spiral weave using a paper plate as a loom.
