This is a book called Woolbur. It was written by Leslie Helakoski and illustrated by Lee Harper.

Woolbur doesn't act like the other sheep. He doesn't want to get sheared, he cards his own wool to get the tangles out, he rides the spinning wheel and dyes himself blue with some indigo. All the while he tries to get his parents to see how great it is.

This is possibly one of the cutest childrens books I have seen in quite some time! I think it is especially great for children who have a knitter, spinner or weaver in the family!

Even if you don't have a yarn artist in the house, this book is still fantastic because it highlights the wonder of being yourself.

Go buy it!
