Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett


I loved the premise behind this book. A girl finds some yarn in a box and begins knitting.  Each time she finishes a project, she has enough extra yarn to start another project.  Soon the whole town is colorful and then the yarn is stolen.

We studied several genres of short stories this year in my fourth grade classroom.  I put this in the fairy tale genre, although there is a strong moral at the end.
