Knit Your Bit: A World War I Story
Mikey’s dad has left home to fight overseas during World War I, and Mikey wants to do something BIG to help. When his teacher suggests that the class participate in a knitting bee in Central Park to knit clothing for the troops, Mikey and his friends roll their eyes—knitting is for girls! But when the girls turn it into a competition, the boys just have to meet the challenge.
Based on a real “Knit-In” event at Central Park in 1918, Knit Your Bit shows readers that making a lasting contribution is as easy as trying something new!

I actually liked this better than I thought I would and I LOVE that the knitting continues to this day. Very accessible historical fiction; this would be an awesome read aloud. The illustrations reminded me of The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin (or whatever his name is). I liked it overall. Read full review
