Squirrel's Sweater

Squirrel's Sweater

As Winter Warmup approaches, all but one of the woodland friends are bundled up for the snowy season ahead.

Bear, Porcupine, and Doe are all ready to hunker down for winter, but not Squirrel. When she discovers that the sweater her grandma knit for her has shrunk, she doesn't know what to do! No amount of stretching or sewing or help from her friends seems to fix her favorite sweater. But perhaps it doesn't need to stay a sweater to remind her of her grandma and her friends?

The colorful gang of woodland friends from Porcupine's Pie and Bear's Bicycle return to help Squirrel as she learns to navigate and accept change. A final spread features an activity that teaches young readers how to transform their own piece of clothing into something new.

"Squirrel's Sweater is a story about friendship, grief, love and loss that will warm up your heart. This book does a beautiful job showing that you can't outgrow your love for someone in your heart."

Joanna Rowland, author of The Memory Box: A Book About Grief

"A cozy celebration of friendship, creativity, and problem-solving with a snuggly surprise ending readers will want to hug."

Katey Howes, author of Rissy No Kissies and Be a Maker

"Squirrel's Sweater is a heartwarming story of friendship, family, and finding a way to hold on to the memories of loved ones. Engaging illustrations pair perfectly with the well-written text as Squirrel prepares for winter, and tries, with the help of her friends, to make her too-snug-sweater a better fit."

Vivian Kirkfield, author of From Here to There: Inventions That Changed the Way the World Moves, Making Their Voices Heard: The Inspiring Friendship of Ella Fitzgerald and Marilyn Monroe, and Sweet Dreams, Sarah: From Slavery to Inventor

"It's easy to find the heart and warmth in this heartwarming story about a treasured gift that has grown too small. A sweet woodland tale, based upon friendship and love."

Lynne Marie, author of The Star in the Christmas Play and Let's Eat! Mealtime Around the World
