Picture Books We Love

Caterpillar Review: Extra Yarn

While we love reading and reviewing picture books here at The Carle, sometimes we need a little help! So, in our cozy reading library at The Carle, we've invited our child visitors to take a moment after reading a book, to write or draw a little about what they thought. What did they like or not like about the book? Would they want to read it again or was it so boring they couldn't even finish? Was there something special about the illustrations that caught their eye? Whatever they thought, we wanted to know! This week, Keith was able to help us out with a review of Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Jon Klassen (Balzer & Bray, 2012). Here's what Keith thought: (Spoiler alert!) "I loved it because the robbers did not get yarn." Keith gave this book five caterpillars out of five caterpillars. That's about as good as it gets! Thanks, Keith!

Keith is right about the robbers not getting yarn, but my favorite part is when the girl makes a sweater everyone in town!
