What did you like about the book? Each page opening has a picture where the reader is invited to discover what a piece of string can become.  The colorful fabric and paper collage art depicts familiar places and things in a young child’s life, such as animals, a plate of spaghetti, a swing.  This is a wordless book which can lend itself to different tellings. The book may spur a reader to look at a piece of string with new eyes.

To whom would you recommend this book? Recommend to families of toddlers.

Who should buy this book? Day cares, and public libraries

Where would you shelve it ? Board books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
