The Pen That Pa Built by Ashley Wolff

In this warm display of old-fashioned know-how and family spirit, a blanket is made from scratch--from the shearing to the carding, spinning, dyeing, and weaving. And it all starts in the pen that Pa built.

Told through Ashley Wolff's vibrant artwork, this illustrated history of 1830s North America celebrates the lost art of creating a cherished, homemade object. Author's note provides further historical and natural science information.ReviewsAwards:The Best Children's Books of the Year 2008, by the Children's Book Committee for Bank Street College of Education
