DESCRIPTION 

On a gentle slope—in the rolling—hills stands a little house of wood and stone. There are hens and bees and apple trees, bright flowers and green grass. And Nari has a little lamb of her very own.

Seasons change and the little lamb grows. One day, it’s time for Nari and her parents to shear her sheep's fleece and then spin and dye the wool. Nari learns to knit with her mother and then knits the yarn into a cozy yellow scarf. But as Nari grows older, her beloved scarf becomes tattered. It's time to recycle the wool into compost, with a little help from worms.

This lyrical story book helps children understand where clothing comes from and is a joyful celebration of traditional crafts and sustainable living and the circle of life.
