Extra Yarn

Care and share.

Annabelle stumbled upon a colorful box of yarn on the street in one freezing winter. Determined to put it to good use, she knitted herself a cozy sweater. Surprisingly, there was still plenty of yarn left. Inspired by her creation, Annabelle knitted a sweater for her beloved dog, Mars. And not stopping there, she even knitted one for Nate, who had previously mocked her colorful sweater. Annabelle's knitting spree didn't seem to have an end in sight. She effortlessly continued knitting sweaters for everyone and everything around her. The remarkable thing was the yarn never seemed to run out. News of Annabelle's talent and generosity soon spread worldwide, creating a buzz of excitement. But little did she know something unexpected was about to happen.

We picked this book for its title. The story revolves around a little girl who selflessly shares her newfound treasure with everyone around her. The vibrant illustrations perfectly complement the storyline and create a visually engaging experience.

In the book Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett, beautifully illustrated by Jon Klassen, children will learn the concept of giving and expecting nothing in return.
