Amos's Sweater by Janet Lunn

Amos's SweaterIn Amos's Sweater, written by Janet Lunn and illustrated by Kim LaFave, Amos is an old sheep that is not too happy about having to give up his wool to make sweaters to keep others warm.  When Aunt Hattie knits a sweater for Uncle Henry, Amos keeps trying to steal the sweater and finally Aunt Hattie and Uncle Henry realize that Amos is cold and needs the sweater to keep himself warm.  The story and pictures are hilarious.  Anna and I both enjoyed it.

Janet Lunn shares two videos, one where she explains where she got the idea for the book and another of her reading the book.
