La pequeña Maya tiene una manta especial que la abuela cosió con sus propias manos. A medida que Maya crece, su manta se desgasta y deshilacha, así que con la ayuda de la abuela, Maya se convierte en un vestido. Con el tiempo, el vestido se convierte en una falda, un chal, una bufanda, una cinta para el cabello y, finalmente, un marcador. Cada elemento tiene un significado especial, mágico, para Maya; anima sus aventuras, la protege o la ayuda de alguna manera. Pero cuando Maya pierde su marcador, conserva sus recuerdos creando un libro sobre sus aventuras y su amor por estos artículos.

Little Maya has a special blanket that Grandma stitched with her own two hands. As Maya grows, her blanket becomes worn and frayed, so with Grandma s help, Maya makes it into a dress. Over time the dress is made into a skirt, a shawl, a scarf, a hair ribbon, and finally, a bookmark. Each item has special, magical, meaning for Maya; it animates her adventures, protects her, or helps her in some way. But when Maya loses her bookmark, she preserves her memories by creating a book about her adventures and love of these items.
