Cat Knit by Jacob Grant
Cat Knit by Jacob Grant (2016)
An adorably expressive cat forms a complicated friendship with a ball of yarn. When Cat’s transforms Yarn by knitting it into a cat sweater, Cat feels betrayed by his friend. Since snow/cold features predominately in this title, it will work with those themes as well. With large, clear illustrations and just a few words on a page, this title should fit well into most storytimes. Note: Jacob Grant is also the author of Scaredy Kate, another Everyday Diversity favorite of mine.
Themes/topics: cats, clothing, yarn/knitting, friendship, funny, mix-ups, snow
Sample text from first two spreads:
Cat and Girl had always been good friends.
