Hi, this is Patrice Badami, with Acorn to tree children’s book review and today I have a book called extra yarn. And this book won a Caldecott Award Honor Award by MAC Barnett, illustrated by Jon Klassen. And this book, it’s not just because I love yarn. That could be part of the reason I grabbed the book, but it’s sparkly on the cover, too. So here, this book talks about a girl. I’m not going to give you the whole book, I just want to show you one stunning picture where there’s a little girl who has a gift she knits and how she takes that wonderful ability to take something she’s passionate about and shares it with the world. It’s an exceptional book because it teaches children to look inward and discover empathy towards others, and it helps children to understand sharing and caring about their community. So it’s an extraordinary book, and it’s called extra yarn by MAC Barnett, illustrated by Jon Klassen. And the end of the story is just so special because it explains how her love is reflected in her work and how love can create amazing things and miracles. So it’s just a wonderful, special book. Once again, extra yarn, so see if you can find it.
