As the sun rises, the weaver begins her work, spinning thread, dying it, and then weaving it into a cloth along with the signs of love and friendship she sees down on earth.

This is a joyful, soothing, gorgeously illustrated bedtime story about the love between family and friends all over the world--and even beyond it.
