Beautifully illustrated retellings of some of the world's favourite stories for children developing their reading confidence.
Authors think of their writings as their children. Produced with infinite care, shown to a few friends, and lovingly tucked away in some obscure file where they sleep undisturbed. I came across one such file recently. It was entitled "Miscellaneous writings: poems, stories, essays, etc." I felt it was time to wake them for public scrutiny. So here they are. Please be kind. They're fragile.

Simple knit and purl stitches utilizing 100 percent cotton yarn create a variety of colorful eight-inch square blocks that can be used alone as bath time washcloths-soft enough for an infant's skin yet durable to last for years-or sewn together into a lovely baby blanket. This book includes instructions for 10 easy-knit blocks, each featuring a different textured pattern, plus a slipped-stitch block with stripes. The geometric textured designs feature mesmerizing diamonds, squares, basket weaves, circles, chevrons, and more. Special consideration was taken that the blocks do not have any lace holes or strands of yarn to catch little fingers or toes. With these mix-and-match patterns, knitters can make as few or as many as they desire, and attractive, matching sets of afghans and washcloths make great gifts for new moms.
