Rainy Books: Yazzy's Amazing Yarn

YAZZY'S AMAZING YARN by CATHEY GRAHAM NICKELL Illustrated by Emily Calimlim    Genre: Children's Picture Book, Ages 4-8  Publisher: Twenty-Eight Creative Date of Publication: August 1, 2019 Number of Pages: 32 Scroll down for giveaway! Yazzy is a creative girl, always sketching out her next adventure. She loves yarn, and she loves to knit! Her neighborhood park is dull and rusty, but Yazzy has a grand plan.  With a little help from her friends, Yazzy’s knitted wonders transform Penny Park into a fuzzy rainbow of warmth and color. What yarn-tastic idea will Yazzy think of next?  The book includes a “History of Yarn Bombing” page for readers who are not familiar with this creative and whimsical type of art. “As a teacher, it's refreshing to find a book that exposes children to an alternative art form. I'm inspired by Yazzy's story, and I know my students will be, too.” -- Deborah Horwi
