Review: Christmas John, encouraged by Granny Judith, rows slaves to freedom across the river from Kentucky to Ohio. Granny is a weaver and creates her own colors for the dyes she uses. With every passenger she asks what color they are weaving. Then she incorporates that color into a quilt that she says will be a rainbow bridge from one side to the other side. Beautiful illustrations.
