Editorial Reviews

Review

Phoebe's Sweater, a children's storybook with knitting patterns, is a gentle tale about many things: the expanding bond between parent, child, and child-to-be; the suspended period between knitting a sweater, gifting a sweater and wearing a sweater; a representation of time just before everything's going to change... Patterns at the back of the book include the hooded textured jacket Phoebe's mom makes her, plus a near-seamless toy version of Phoebe herself. --Yarn Market News

Phoebe's mother plans to knit Phoebe a sweater of her very own to help her with the transition of being the only child to big sister. The story is very sweet and the illustrations are absolutely fantastic. At the end of the book, Joanna includes patterns for Phoebe's Sweater, as well as patterns for Phoebe the Mouse, Phoebe's Dress and Phoebe's Doll Sweater. --Petite Purls Magazine

This is an adorable little book. The first part is the story of a cute little mouse named Phoebe whose mother knits her a special sweater while waiting for her new baby brother ir sister to arrive. It's a sweet little story, and the illustrations are wonderful. But then the second part are actual knitting patterns, so you can make the sweater for your little girl... All in all, it's a complete package of cuteness. --knittingscholar.com

Phoebe's Sweater is a beautiful gift to boys and girls alike. A tale of a special handmade sweater, and the place that it has in a child's heart, Joanna and her husband Eric do a wonderful job of reminding us all about the value of living a handmade life. --Rhythm of the Home Magazine

A sweet book full of the love a knitted sweater can bestow. The illustrations in this book are superb, rich and textured with the kind of detail that young children love to explore. --Knitty.com

I received my book yesterday and am VERY pleased!
Joyce from Charlotte
I have to admit that I ordered the book for the mouse doll and sweater pattern, but the book is very well written and the illustrations are so lovely and sweet.

I would recommend this book to knitters and non-knitters.

I actually ordered this book because I wanted the sweater pattern, but was thrilled to discover that the story itself is very sweet. The illustrations are beautiful; I would have purchased the book for them alone. My four year old daughter also loved the story, so this book is a winner all around! I can't wait to knit the sweater, and my daughter wants a mouse doll too...

Phoebe's Sweater is one of those gently written and quietly illustrated books that parents and children will treasure. Often when a new baby comes into a home an older sibling feels the shift in the birth order and a little unsteady about the 'new' family and their place in it. The sweater that Phoebe's mother knit not only keeps Phoebe warm when she plays outside but reminds Phoebe that she is loved and cherished by both parents. As a former nursery school owner/teacher, mother and grandmother I would recommend this beautifully illustrated and written book to anyone.

After learning about this book on an online knitting site I quickly ordered it for my little girl. What a delightful book! I am especially loving the illustrations that show the rather large feet, ears, and tails that mice have. And the pic of the cardinal delivering the mail is a favorite as well. The best part of the book are the patterns that are included to bring the story home for your child. As a mom, I love story tie-ins that are wholesome and creative and that don't come in a Happy Meal. I'm in the process of knitting Phoebe Mouse for my daughter.

As a homeschooling parent I'm thinking of ways to use this book in a short unit study. We can study mice, identify different plants and trees and bugs, learn our colors, discuss the changing seasons, talk about families having new babies, bake bread together as Phoebe and her mother do, have an outdoor tea party with swiss cheese, etc. The possibilities are endless.
This book was obviously created with a great love for the minds of young children and the illustrations add an even greater depth to the story.

I received my book yesterday and am VERY pleased! It is well written and leaves a lot of room for the reader to use their imagination to explore beyond the story line. I LOVED IT! Also very well illustrated. Looking forward to many happy reads with my granddaughter and hope more books come soon from this author. Great job!

I purchased Phoebe's Sweater as a birthday gift for my granddaughter. The story is a gentle tale of Phoebe's activities through the seasons while mother knits her a sweater and waits for the new baby's arrival. Illustrations are well done. The knitting patterns are well-written and easy to follow. My adult daughter was so impressed with the sweater that she asked me to knit a larger one for her! The little mouse doll and her clothes are adorable. This is a real winner! Now I need a sequel for the next granddaughter's birthday.

I ordered this book after reading a review of it in a knitting magazine. I bought the book because I liked the idea of knitting for your child and the child knowing they are loved. Each stitch is knit with love. I plan on reading this to my children one day. The illustrations are beautifully done as well. The knitting patterns are also wonderful and I can't wait to cast on! I would recommend this book to knitters and non-knitters.

I was originally drawn to this book because it gives patterns for the handknits seen throughout the story, and as a knitter, I loved the concept. When I received the book I was blown away by the beautiful story and the gorgeous illustrations. This book is so beautiful! The patterns don't disappoint either! What little girl wouldn't love to wear the same sweater as a cute book character? And have a doll with a matching sweater? A great book for kids and adults! And a must for those who knit for children!
