There is a girl in The Talking Cloth. Her name is Amber. She is going to her Aunt Phoebe's house. Her Aunt Phoebe tells her about a cloth. The cloths's name is the Adinkra cloth. She says it came from Africa. The cloth has all different patterns on it.

I like this book because it tells about different cultures.

My favorite part was when Amber's dad looked at the cloth and he said, "I thought that was a pile of laundry that you forgot to put away". I thought he was being funny.

This book reminds me of when my mom told me about a special blanket.

I think this book would be good for kids in kindergarten through fourth grade. I recommend this book to people who like to learn about different cultures.
