Extra Yarn – Mac Barnett

Today I read EXTRA YARN by Mac Barnett. This is a 566-words picture book.  In summary a little girl found a box of yarn and knits sweater for the entire town – human, animals, objects – until an archduke decided he wants it for himself. But after he gets it, he realizes that he can not use it because it does not work for him, so he threw it away and it found its way back to the little girl and made her happy.

MORAL: not because something works for someone else, it doesn’t mean it will work for you.  At least, that was my interpretation of the book.
