I love books and am always on the look out for great books, which includes books with great stories and pictures for my children. There are a lot of beautiful children’s books out there, but I’ve recently come across children’s books who’s subject is fiber related. And they are really great books too, both in illustration, story, and imagination. Even if you don’t have little ones, you’ll still find these book enjoyable.

The first book is Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Jon Klassen. The story is about a magic box of yarn that a young girl knits up for her whole town. The watercolored knits are really beautiful. It would be pretty fun to have a town covered in watercolored yarn.
The next book is Cloth Lullaby by Amy Novesky and illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault. This is a young readers biographical book about the artist Louise Bourgeois, who repaired tapestries with her mother and later became a contemporary artist. The illustrations are very creative and gorgeous. And the story is told in a poetic way that really captures the artist.
I’m going to add a third book to the list. I haven’t read this book yet, but from what I saw it looks really cute. It’s called Cat Knit written & illustrated by Jacob Grant. The story is about a cat and it’s ball of yarn. I already own a book by Jacob Grant and my kids and I really like it, so I’m sure I’ll like this one too.
And if you’re on the look out for other great children’s books, here are some of our favorites for story and illustration:
1| Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown
2| The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf
3| The Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers
4| Some Bugs by Angela Diterlizzi
5| This is Paris by Miroslav Sasek
6| Beautiful Oops! by Barney Saltzberg
7| Gaston by Kelly DiPucchio
I could probably go on forever listing books out. Have you come across a really great book recently? I’d love to hear about it, even if it’s for adults (because I’m always looking for something new).
