This heartwarming winter story celebrates the giving spirit of Hannukah--and is perfect for those who love to knit!

Mrs. Goldman always knits hats for everyone in the neighborhood, and Sophia, who thinks knitting is too hard, helps by making the pom-poms. But now winter is here, and Mrs. Goldman herself doesn't have a hat-she's too busy making hats for everyone else! It's up to Sophia to buckle down and knit a hat for Mrs. Goldman. But try as Sophia might, the hat turns out lumpy, the stitches aren't even, and there are holes where there shouldn't be holes. Sophia is devastated until she gets an idea that will make Mrs. Goldman's hat the most wonderful of all. Readers both young and old will relate to Sophia's frustrations, as well as her delight in making something special for someone she loves.

A knitting pattern is included in the back of the book.

A sweet story that gently illustrates love in action. When a young girl realizes her neighbor knits hats for everyone around her, but doesn't have one herself, she begins to knit and make a special hat for Mrs. Goldman.

A touching picturebook about selflessness and love. I loved the concept - about a girl who knits a hat for her knitting teacher. It touched my heart, but I also loved the pastels to tell the story.
