What an amazing and wonder-filled book! The story is not just fascinating, it creatively teaches how we get beautiful yarn for our scarves, hats, and other warm things and what life on a farm is like. The illustrations are outstanding, so beautiful and extremely well done. And what a bonus to get knitting patterns at the end, with lovely photos. I highly recommend this book to people of any age!

I read this with my ten year old and even though he's older than the target age range, he still enjoyed it. Rainbow colored Elizabeth is darling and I loved the progression of the story. The illustrations are beautiful! The patterns are easy enough for beginner knitters - especially the scarf.

The book paired with the hat, mitts or scarf will be enough to tempt any little one into the ways of wool!

First of all, thank you Laura for sending this wonderful book to me.

The story is well written and engaging, illustrations are beautiful, and useful information can be gained by reading this story. The knitting patterns are easily understood and the projects are cute.


My granddaughter thinks it is great and wants her friends to read it too!
