Spin a Scarf of Sunshine (Hardcover)
A lively, charming celebration of sustainability and crafting - Nari knits a scarf from her sheep's fleece.
'On a gentle slope in rolling hills stood a little house of wood and stone. There were hens and bees and apple trees, bright flowers and soft green grass. And Nari had a little lamb of her very own.'
As the seasons change, Nari and her parents shear her sheep's fleece, and spin and dye the wool. Nari knits the yarn into a cosy yellow scarf.
But as Nari grows older, her beloved scarf becomes tattered. It's time to recycle the wool into compost, with a little help from the worms.
This charming picture book will help children understand where clothing comes from, and is a joyful celebration of traditional crafts and sustainable living. The luminous illustrations are full of character, texture and seasonal detail.
