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

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.
