I don't normally review children's books, but I just had to review Knit Together by Angela Dominguez because the press kit I received with my free advance reader's copy included a crayon and a knit pouch! Too cute!
This picture book is about a daughter who likes to draw and a mother who likes to knit. The daughter thinks knitting is better than drawing because you can actually wear the finished creation. So, the daughter asks her mother to teach her to knit. Well, knitting is not so easy, and the daughter becomes frustrated. Luckily, mom has a solution: one that combines both of their talents. Mom and daughter work together using their drawing and knitting talents to make a beautiful knitted blanket that they can wear together.
This is a lovely little story about a mother-daughter relationship that sort of gives a message that everyone has something to contribute and look at what you can accomplish when you work together! This book would make a great read on Mother's Day or any day, and it will especially resonate with moms who like to knit and/or crafty moms and kids.
Knit Together is published by Dial and is for ages 3-5. It's available on bookstore shelves today!
I received a free advance review copy for my honest review.
