I knew Susan's new book, Spud & Chloë at the Farm, was coming out soon and was looking forward to seeing it. So, I was extremely thrilled when Artisan Books asked if I would like to be part of the blog tour for the book. Lucky me!
Well, let me tell you that Melody has fallen in love with the book the day it arrived on our doorstep. She has been trying to convince me every day to let her have the "gook". That's what she calls a book. She goes to my book shelf in the mornings and pulls it out and say, " Mama, me, gook, me?" I shouldn't be surprised that the book would appeal to children. The book contains pictures of 13 adorable knitting projects and in the back, a 9 page illustrated story of Spud & Chloë.
I figured that she would be the perfect person to lead you through some of the inside peeks of the book. So here goes Melody's first
book gook review. Please cut her some slack. Since she is only 3 yrs old, her comments are brief.
"Oh sheep! I lub sheeps!"
I told her that the doll was named Chloë. She said,"Chloë red dress. No blue." Clearly, she is asking me to make Chloë for her, but in a red dress.
"Pig! Pink! Oink, oink, oink."
"Wow, more sheep!"
"Chick-in! Mama and baby chicks."
"Oh cute kitty!"
"Wolf?" I told her it was a dog and she said,"Oh doggy, woof woof!"
"Story! I lub stories."
Since Melody will not relinquish her copy of the book, Artisan Books has generously offered to give one of you lucky readers a copy of the book. Please leave a comment telling me which is your favorite character/animal from the book. The last day to comment is April 21, 2011. The winner will be picked by a random number generator. Good luck!
