Young readers will follow along as Jack presents the origin of woolen products, starting with raising the sheep that grows wool and ending with knitting the yarn, in this charming, narrative nonfiction book. Key Selling Points • Fresh take on farm animals: There are many children’s books about farm animals, but this one looks at sheep in a new and engaging context—as the first step in what will eventually become woolen products kids use every winter. • Go directly to the source: All four books in this series show young readers where everyday things and food items come from. • Curricular connections: The well-researched, family-centered tale is bolstered by sheep facts throughout, and a final page of “sheep by the numbers” rounds out the book, providing numerical information about sheep that will appeal to parents and educators alike.
