JANE'S BLANKET

JANE'S BLANKET

2019-09-17

Since she was a baby, Jane has had a beloved pink blanket. The comfortingly soft fabric and color of the blanket provides security and familiarity to young Jane. The blanket is present in every moment of the young child’s life: tugged across floors, hugged tightly before falling asleep, and rubbed against a cheek for comfort and smiles. Its threads wear as she loves and relies upon their softness. As Jane grows her blanket shrinks. The connection between girl and blanket evolves as Jane matures from child to adolescent. Jane learns that the comforts of childhood must not be discarded but shared through the threads of memories and moments.

Short sentences with layered symbolism make this a story to treasure for both parents and children. Al Parker’s honest illustrations highlight the poignancy of Jane’s Blanket: both story and symbolic object. From naps atop the blanket to sleeping in a bigger bed, Jane’s muted pink blanket narrates the bittersweet nuances between out-growing and growing up.
