a delightful book that as a knitter I wanted to give to my great-nieces. They loved I read to them and loved the story. Highly Recommend.

With nine beautiful illustrations on the first page alone, the reader very quickly learns that "Nell knits . . . . a lot." She's also a very good listener, in part because Danny Tucker says she has a voice "like a cricket with a pillow over its head." So Nell rarely talks. She just sits, listens, and knits. But Nell doesn't knit just to pass the time. She knits for service. She makes blankets, scarves, mittens, caps, and socks for babies, family members, and soldiers, all before she knits a sweater for herself. No one is shocked when her sweater garners the blue ribbon at the county fair, but Nell gets a pleasant surprise when town's mayor gives her a special medal for her generosity and service to the community. Nell uses her craft to model her credo - service above self - and ultimately find her true voice. Then she teaches her friends how to knit, and, in a fun twist, she even includes Danny Tucker in her knitting clique.
