Just as spiders spin and repair their webs, Louise s own mother was a weaver of tapestries. Louise spent her childhood in France as an apprentice to her mother before she became a tapestry artist herself. She worked with fabric throughout her career, and this biographical picture book shows how Bourgeois s childhood experiences weaving with her loving, nurturing mother provided the inspiration for her most famous works. With a beautifully nuanced and poetic story, this book stunningly captures the relationship between mother and daughter and illuminates how memories are woven into us all.

I didn't realize when I put the hold on this book that it was for "young readers." But I imagine the prose seems too poetic to maintain the interest of young readers. And too light for adult readers. A slight volume.
