A girl finds a box of yarn. She knits herself and her dog a sweater and there’s still yarn. No matter how much she uses she never seems to run out of this wonderful box of yarn…but trouble is brewing when other people begin to notice and are jealous of her colorful yarn Read this lovely (and colorful) story to see what happens when magic is taken for granted rather than appreciated.
Jake Goes Peanuts
Collection:

Why is this a pick?:
Written in rhyming verse with bold and humorous illustrations, all of Michael Wright’s Jake books are fabulous, but this is my favorite. Jake is a VERY picky eater. He wants peanut butter sandwiches for every meal. So his parents come up with a plan: put peanut butter in everything for a week. The results are hilarious. Jake Goes Peanuts is sure to become a favorite of many parents as well as children, whether they’re picky eaters or not.
