KIRKUS REVIEW

A mother and daughter share their art, their craft and their love.

A little girl tells readers how much she loves to draw. Her mother does not draw—she knits, which is far better, according to the girl, because you can wear knit garments such as hats and mittens or play with finger puppets on a glove. However much the girl tries, though, she cannot learn to knit; the yarn ends up in a tangle. Her mother reassures her and suggests a project. Mom will knit what her daughter draws. Inspiration comes, and they gather their supplies, finish the project and happily share its warmth at the beach on a chilly day. The bespectacled mother, her daughter and a little dog are colorful characters rendered with a bit of digital help in a mix of gouache, colored pencil, ink and collage against a white background. Swirls of yarn, a typeface that resembles handwriting and smiling cartoon faces add up to a lively and enjoyable story about sharing hobbies and good times. It’s a little too bad there’s no author’s note about intarsia knitting.

A warm family story. (Picture book. 3-6)
