One Minute PB Review - Extra Yarn

There are classic picture books, like Where The Wild Things Are and The Little Engine That Could, that stand the test of time. Extra Yarn, written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Jon Klassen, has that feel to it. Fifty years from now, kids will still be reading it.

On a cold afternoon, in a cold little town,

where everywhere you looked was either the white of snow

or the black of soot from chimneys,

Annabelle found a box filled with yarn of every color.

So she went home and knit herself a sweater. 

And when Annabelle was done, she had some extra yarn.

Annabelle doesn't stop with her sweater. She knits sweaters for everyone - even things that don't usually wear sweaters like trees and houses. Annabelle won't sell her box, even for ten million dollars.

Favorite Line: All of them ;-)
