A touch and feel ball of yarn and a mouse leaning to knit.

Noodle has watched the Farmer’s wife knit many times. She even has the instructions down. She finally gets her chance to knit when a color does not match what the farmer’s wife needs. And what a scarf Noodle knits. While working on her project she gets help from her friends, and in the end she helps them as well. A lovely story that also have a soft tactile touch to every page.
Lapset rakastavat tällaisia aistikirjoja, joissa on erilaisia kosketus- ja tunnustelupintoja! Tässä kirjassa on jopa oikea juoni tarinassa, joten lukuhetki on todella onnistunut. Kirjan kuvitus on suloista, tarina on mielestäni hyvä ja oivallisesti keksitty aistielämyksen ympärille. Myös tekstin sijoittelu aukeamalla on hauskaa.

Koskettelukirjat on kivoja vielä melkein 4-vuotiaanakin.

Noodle wants to take up this hobby and make something, but Noodle doesn't have the materials needed to make a soft masterpiece. It isn't until one day that the farmer's wife throws a ball of wooly yarn never to be used by her because it is not the right color for her new creation.

My 19 month old daughter totally adores this book. Each page has touchy feely yarn on it, which she loves following with her finger. The drawings are very colourful and detailed and the knitted scarf gets longer and longer on each page. The pages have so much colour and texture. The detail, especially in the texture "knitting" is amazing.
I agree, there's not much of a story, but younger children will love following the mouse and her scarf from page to page and see her and her friends get cosy on

I'm a big knitter, which is why I got this book, because it was just too cute to pass up!
The story itself was cute, but nothing special, nor anything amazing. Adorable, but that's it. There isn't a real moral and kid's don't learn anything from it.
Nevertheless I'm glad I've added it to my collection, as it's adorable, the illustrations really made the book for me! :)

OMG! Fuzzy on every page!
Jared White
This one would be a 3 star, in my opinion, if it hadn't won me over with the "With soft-to-touch wool on every page." I'm a very tactile person and I know some kids are, too, so I enjoyed feeling the knitting as the story went along and I'm sure there's kiddoes that would as well.

Noodle has watched the farmer's wife knitting for months and has longed to try it. Then one day there's a big, beautiful ball of yarn which the farmer's wife decides is the wrong color and Noodle is more than happy to t

The book was really good. Noodle (the mouse) took a ball of wool that the farmers wife didn't want. Why? Because she wanted to make a scarf. Now all she needed was some knitting needles. So she went off to find Hedgie. She said to him "I'm looking for some knitting needles". Then Hedgie said "Will these do?" He showed her two of his quills. "Yes!" And took them and set off home. She knitted all night long. And then when it was done, it was way to big for Noodle's House! So, yes the book is reall ...more

This is a cute and simple story, nothing too complex or riveting, but I really loved the fact that you could feel Noodle's yarn on every page. There definitely should be more tactile books like this one for children, it really brought the story to life.

While I know it doesn't totally need 5 stars, I can't help myself. I love this book. The touchable quality is very fun, but I really just loved that it was an adorable picture book centered around knitting.

very colourful, very good for touching (i like to knit so very good story :p) & big words & beautiful pictures! A little too big for the baby to hold herself though .

Super cute illustrations -- not much story.

Mouse has fun knitting.

The yarn flocking on each page is gimmicky but cute. The story is sweet as Noodle, the mouse, catches the knitting bug and simply must keep knitting through the night. Really nice story.

I really enjoyed the touch and feel aspect in this book. It is also a good book about community and caring for one another.

super cute! The touchable yarn was a nice touch.

Although c'mon Noodle, don't take your wool yarn through the water- it's going to felt.
