California,

About the Author:

Eleanor Coerr is the author of many books for young readers, including The Big Baloon Race, a Reading Rainbow book, Chang's Paper Pony, and The Josefina Story Quilt, a Notable Children’s Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies.



Bruce Degen is the bestselling author and illustrator of the beloved, perennial favorite Jamberry and numerous award-winning books for children. He is the author and illustrator of Daddy Is a Doodlebug and Sailaway Home as well as the illustrator of the highly acclaimed Magic School Bus series by Joanna Cole; the ever-popular Jesse Bear books by Nancy White Carlstrom; Jazzmatazz! by Stephanie Calmenson; and Shirley's Wonderful Baby by Valiska Gregory (available at your local library).

Bruce Degen's involvement with art has ranged from painting and printmaking to teaching art in New York City schools and directing an artists' lithography studio in Israel. Mr. Degen studied art at the Cooper Union and Pratt Institute. He was born in Brooklyn, New York—just like Charlie Muttnik—and now lives with his family in Connecticut.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3–In the spring of 1850, Faith's family begins their journey to California in a covered wagon. Her pet hen, Josefina, “too old to lay eggs and to tough to eat,” keeps her company and shares the hardships on the way. As their wagon crosses a wide river, it lurches, Faith loses her hold on Josefina, and the current nearly sweeps the hen away. Crossing the desert with little food or water, Faith will not trade her pet to the Indians. Later when robbers creep into camp late at night, Josefina squawks loudly. Pa calls her a “humdinger of a watchdog,” but the excitement is too much for the old hen. Faith's brother buries her beneath a pine tree on the trail, and the heartbroken little girl makes a pine tree patch to remember. Reaching California, Ma helps Faith put together all the patchwork pieces she has made, and the child sleeps under her Josefina story quilt. An author's note gives historical details and explains the importance of quilts as family diaries. Eleanor Coerr's beginning-to-read adventure (HarperCollins, 1986) captures the perils and heartaches of the westward journey. Christina Moore's narration does full credit to the emotional content of the story. Sound effects such as banjo music, spring rain, and coyotes howling add to the telling. Page-turn signals are optional. Reminiscent of the Little House on the Prairie books, youngsters will enjoy Josefina's story.Mary Jean Smith, Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN
