Story Saturdays: Extra Yarn

Bruce Galleries, Carnegie Museum of Art


Stop by the Ailsa Mellon Bruce Decorative Arts and Design galleries on Saturday, November 20, for in-person story time with the curator of Locally Sourced, Alyssa Velazquez. Alyssa will read Extra Yarn by Mac Barnet and illustrator Jon Klassen and then lead an art-making activity for children 12 and under.

From bestselling and award-winning author Mac Barnett and illustrator Jon Klassen comes Extra Yarn, a Caldecott Honor Book, Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner, and a New York Times bestseller. Annabelle finds a box of colorful yarn and knits sweaters for everyone in her town. She has so much that she moves on to knit sweaters for trees and buildings and cars. She never runs out of yarn. Learn how one girl's generosity magically transformed her community through the craft of knitting.
