When Emma was a born she was given a small rug that her mother put by her crib.  When she was old enough to walk no one could remember who gave her the rug, but she loved it very much.  Emma would spend a great deal of time just looking at the rug as if it were showing her something.  When her little hands were big enough to hold a pencil she started to draw and paint amazing pictures.  Everyone thought she was very talented and she began winning awards for her art.  No one knew where her inspiration came from and she did not tell them.  This is a great book to show the imagination of a child and how little things can be of great inspiration and importance to some people.  (Brittany Olufson, teacher,
