Love From Woolly: A Lift-the-Flap Book of Woolly Gifts

Love From Woolly

Witchbaby and I chanced upon Love From Woolly: A Lift-the-Flap Book of Woolly Gifts by Nina Michaels at the bookstore last weekend while we waited for the hub to get a haircut. It was instant love—well, for me at least. Witchbaby slapped her palms against the board pages and babbled to herself, but whether it was in approval or disapproval, I cannot say.

With gorgeous illustrations by Nicola Smee, Love From Woolly is part interactive guessing game, part touch-and-feel book, with actual knitted fabric peeking out from within cut-outs of socks, mittens, hats, and scarves that Woolly has knitted for her menagerie of friends. Her handiwork is, in turn, hidden beneath movable flaps disguised as presents, and your child is invited to guess the identities of the knitted gifts based on the rhyming clues offered. Utterly charming.
