In a few weeks, a sweet girl in our family will celebrate her third birthday. I like giving gifts that have a little magic in them. When I read the adorable If You Want to Knit Some Mittens written by Laura Purdie Salas, illustrated by Angela Matteson, I knew I found something special!
Then I ordered a cute little stuffed sheep
and a pair of golden mittens (which I attached to the illustration with removable painter's tape). I had planned to add a few strands of yarn, but in a rush to get to the post office before closing, I forgot about it. : (
I wish I could be there when our girl opens her gift. I hope it brings her lots of smiles! I'm ordering more copies (along with the "extras") for holiday gift-giving. I'm grateful to Laura and Angela for creating a lovely book young readers will enjoy for years to come!
A big thank you to Carol at Beyond LiteracyLink for hosting our Poetry Friday gathering this week.
I am thankful to be part of the Poetry Friday family. I hope you get to relax, spend time with your loved ones, and enjoy the beauty all around us.
