Michelle Edwards and illustrated by G. Brian Karas.
Sophia is worried about Mrs. Goldman, her elderly friend and neighbor, being out in the cold without a hat. Mrs. Goldman has made hats for everyone but herself. Sophia takes up the challenge, even though "knitting is hard. and it takes too long" and she would rather make pom-poms. This charming book ends with directions for the hat (and pom-poms) from the author, who is also the author of A Knitters Home Companion.
The work of G. Brian Karas has been nominated for Ladybug Picture Book awards in 2012 (for Neville) and in 2015 (for As an Oak Tree Grows). This is Ms. Edwards' first nomination.
This is one of the ten titles nominated for the 2017 Ladybug Picture Book Award.
