If You Want to Knit Some Mittens

How do you knit a pair of mittens? The first step is to get a sheep of course! In this playful story, a girl follows 18 steps to knit mittens — from bringing home a sheep to carding, spinning, and dyeing the wool to knitting the mittens. But along the way, her mischievous sheep creates chaos... and wins her heart. By wintertime, the girl has sunny-yellow mittens, the sheep has a sunny-yellow hat, and together they're ready for adventure.

This tale of patience, creativity, and friendship is knitted from skeins of humor and love! Kids will be fascinated to learn all the steps it takes to make something as simple as a pair of mittens, and they'll laugh out loud at clever scenes like the girl and her sheep jumping rope and going sledding. In the end, this girl's desire to knit mittens leads to something even better: the warmth of friendship.

Description

"The sprightly, colorful illustrations portray a smiley kid and equally happy animal friends who sip drinks, jump rope, and go downhill skiing and sledding. (There is a disclaimer on the copyright page concerning any injuries that might occur should readers try this with their own sheep.) The notably helpful sheep at the end sports its own matching hat, complete with pompom. While the actual knitting is confined to a couple sentences, the author does show that the sheep-to-mittens hands-on process involves many steps. An enjoyable crafty excursion." — Kirkus Reviews
