Description

Shall I knit you a hat to keep your ears warm?

A delightful tale of holiday giving

When Mother Rabbit knits a cozy winter hat for Little Rabbit, he likes it very much. In fact, he likes it so much that he thinks all of his friends need hats for Christmas. And he has some very creative designs in mind.

While Little Rabbit gets wrapped up in the joy of giving, everyone is reminded that friendship is the best gift of any season. Shall I Knit You a Hat? is a 2005 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.



About the Author

Kate Klise lives and writes on her forty-acre farm in a valley north of Norwood, Missouri (population: 300 something), where, not long ago, a man at the post office asked her: "Do you make those stories up out of your own head?" Indeed she does!

M. Sarah Klise draws and paints in her studio in Berkeley, California, where she lives with two cats. In addition to her work as an illustrator, Ms. Klise teaches drawing to children and adults in San Francisco's Chinatown. Kate and Sarah are sisters who have previously collaborated on illustrated novels for children. This is their first picture book.





Praise For Shall I Knit You a Hat?

"Beating the winter chill and warming hearts are the themes in the Klise sisters' (Regarding the Fountain) darling tribute to knitwear and holiday giving.... The thoughtful and elaborate design process leads to a very merry Christmas morning fashion show in town. The Klises consistently sound notes of tenderness and humor. Images of Little Rabbit's headgear sketches and Mother Rabbit's method of clandestinely taking measurements are a hoot."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
