One of my favourite picture books about the magic of kindness. It works great as a class read aloud too because the students love to chime in about Annabelle still having "extra yarn." Klassen is also one of my favourite illustrators, so this book is just a win all around for me.

Sometimes you can take a simple thing and turn it into something extraordinary.

Kathleen - a modern story with fairytale elements and beautiful use of colour.

A magic box of yarn allows a girl to bring color to her town as she knits sweaters or hats for everything alive - or not! One day a jealous royal arrives & tries to steal it....
Beautiful illustrations.
Same team of author & illustrator have another great book annoy brothers digging an interesting deep hole.

I love this book so much. It's about kindness and generosity without being mawkish. It's funny in a quiet way. The illustrations are lovely and also quietly funny.

Imaginative way to learn morals and feed the creative mind.

This is a gentle story where magic comes from the simplest of places and where kindess is key. Just perfect for curling up by the fire. Knitting your own sweater for the occasion is optional, of course.
