It was every bit as delightful as I hoped it would be.
Do you knit? I don’t, but wish that I did. Either way, knitter or non-knitter, you will love this book about a little girl with a very special box of yarn. (There’s a ton of yarn-bombing going on in this book–and I can’t get enough of it.)
Later, she moves to America and makes paper cranes to send back to her grandparents in Japan. The illustrations are beautiful and there are instructions on how to make a paper crane. We did not try it, but maybe one day we will.
Also, at the end, you will be really hungry for tamales. And really sad that you can’t make them for yourself. (Or maybe that’s just me. You probably CAN make them for yourself.)
Do you have a favorite “making” book? Have you or your kids been making anything lately? Leave a comment and let me know!
