happy valentine’s day

 

I know that I’ve mentioned the Making Books Monthly newsletter by Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord before.  It is a wonderful newsletter about making all kinds of books with kids. 

This month she introduces us to the printed adinkra cloths made in Ghana and the many heart-shaped symbols that can be found on them.  There is a great link describing these cloths here.  This is sankofa which symbolizes learning from and building on the past.

It seems appropriate somehow.
