Audio Version Holds Its Own!

This is a review for the Audible version of the book. I can't afford to buy the paperback or hardback right now but couldn't wait to read it as I heard it was exquisite.

I love picture books. They inspire my inner artist. Still... I'm truly surprised to see how much fun just listening to the story without pictures was.

Narrated by Nicola Barber with accompanying music made this a beautiful story about never-ending yarn. Don't think that this magic was lost on this knitter. I almost have that wonderful situation. I get to knit from donated yarn. I make comfort items for the homeless, homebound, cancer patients and others. It is a win-win craft for me. I get to knit forever and other people get warm hats or toys or scarves... I haven't knitted a sweater yet, but it would be fun to yarn bomb everyone and everything around me!

I'm hoping to finally READ and enjoy the pictures in the book someday soon, but this Audible version does hold its own.

NO PICTURES!!!

Despite this title being categorized under the Syncronized Pictures category, it does NOT have any storybook pictures to follow along with. Only the cover art is pictured.

Love it

My daughter and I love this book. She listens to all the time. We first found this book at the library, and it had a CD. My daughter wanted to hear the CD and loved it.
