Yazzy loved to knit and she loved yarns. Her to-do list always had something to do with yarn and knitting. She loved to make things colorful by using yarn and she knitted a soft, cushiony rectangle with an elastic thread in it to make a stretchy cover for her phone. One afternoon while walking back from school with her mom, Yazzy noticed that Penny Park where she used to play as a child had become dull and the painted colors weren't as bright as before. She made a grand plan. She knitted for weeks, using a rainbow of yarn, and carried the rainbow creation to the park with the help of Kayla and Isabel, two of her friends. Will they be able to restore color to Penny Park? What does Mr. Green, the groundskeeper, think of the park now?
Yazzy's Amazing Yarn by Cathey Nickell is a yarn-tastic story that will motivate young readers to be creative and bring color into all aspects of their lives. It also introduces children to knitting and crocheting in an interesting way and will encourage them to try their hand at making things using yarn. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and lively, like Yazzy's creations, and they breathe life into the scenes, making the story appealing to young readers. The book is also informative because it tells readers about the history of yarn, and teaches them about teamwork, cooperation, kindness, hobbies, and crafts in a whimsical way. It is a great story for children, especially those who are interested in crafts. Parents and tutors can read the story to their children at home and school, thereby bringing out their imaginative and creative side.
