Editorial Reviews


"The Big Acorn Race is a delightful story filled with whimsy, magic, and fun. It inspires the imagination... and then gives readers the tools to crochet the characters so that they can let that imagination run wild. Original, unique, and unbelievably adorable!!" --Kathryn Vercillo of Crochet Concupiscence

"In The Big Acorn Race, Jennifer Olivarez tells a charming story set in a cheerful crocheted world, and offers fun projects with friendly illustrations and lots of step-by-step photos." --Suzann Thompson, author of Cute Crochet World

"The Big Acorn Race is super cute and extremely creative. I was particularly impressed with the level of detail and photography in Jennifer's instructions!" --Twinkie Chan, author of Twinkie Chan's Crocheted Abode à la Mode

"The story of The Big Acorn Race is cute and just the right length for kids with short attention spans. And what kid wouldn't love to have the characters of their book to play with? Jennifer's instructions are so very well done and easy to follow. I just can't wait to pull out my crochet hook and yarn and get started!" --Lois Weaver, ZoZo FiberArts

"We love how The Big Acorn Race not only tells a heartwarming story but also inspires readers to create a mini crochet universe of their own." --Liz & Jimmy Reed of Cuddles and Rage
