Marvin’s Marvelous Day! by Anne Drew
A charming children’s book about a little knitted rabbit who has a sack on his back and is lonely. On his travels he starts to find bits of knitting which he packs in his sack. The knitting trail leads him all the way to the knitter. The pieces of knitting are sewn and stuffed to make him a friend. The book is beautifully illustrated by a young artist from Gloucester and printed locally. At the back of the book is a knitting pattern to make your very own Marvin.
This book allows parents, carer’s and other adults to help children understand that sheep produce wool that can be cleaned, spun and knitted.
