Highly Recommend for yarn lovers everywhere!
My Mom loved receiving this for Mother's Day. She recently took up knitting and she loves children's books so it was a perfect fit. I have read it to my children several times as well and they love it too!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

There are many picture books that I like, a few that I love, and every now and then one comes along that I absolutely, positively, MUST get a hard copy of. Extra Yarn is a must have for every child's library. This is not the kind of book that you can get by with checking out of the library (although that's good, too).
Extra Yarn is the story of a girl that lives in a dirty, cold town. She finds a box of colorful yarn and starts to knit, but she never seems to run out of yarn.
This is one of those books that I read and then thought, "Why aren't there more books like this?" It is a beautiful, entertaining fable that will delight children and adults of all ages. Stories like this don't come around very often. Honestly, if you were to ask me what my #1 pick in children's picture books is, this would be it. I highly recommend this book. There is a reason that it has so many 5 star reviews!
The Artwork: I cannot say enough good about Jon Klassen and his beautiful illustrations. The art was simply outstanding. I just loved it. I don't know if the publisher could have paired up a better team than Barnett and Klassen.

Remarkable! Loved It!
This remarkable little story about an ordinary box of yarn and extraordinary little girl had me paying attention from the first page. The illustrations are so likable and Annabelle is a spitfire. She finds a box of yarn and right away she is entertained with the thought of knitting herself this colorful sweater. She realizes she has some yarn left and well she just knits her little heart out. You cannot help but root for her especially after she turns down the snooty archduke and all that money for her resourceful box of yarn. The moral of the story shines through when Annabelle is rewarded for her noble efforts and we all just want to give Annabelle a big hug.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is a great story for little ones and I think older elementary kids will like it too.
It is charming, it is creative and it will knock your socks off but don't worry Annabelle will knit you some more!
