I love Mac Barnett. Extra Yarn is one of our favorite picture books of all time. I bought this as a bedtime book to read aloud to my 6-year-old daughter. We both loved it! In fact the whole family loved it! This book did not stay relegated to bedtime for long. We cuddled on the couch on a Saturday afternoon and read it. I started taking it whenever we were in the car to read while my husband drove. You will not want to put this book down; it is just that fun. It is also deceptively simple. The sentences are relatively short and easy to read with a lovely flowing cadence. However, the concepts are sometimes fairly deep. This book never fell victim to the obvious or to the juvenile potty humor that I hate. And the vocabulary, completely fabulous! This gave me the opportunity to teach my daughter several new vocabulary words. I definitely love that! It is practically impossible to find a funny book with such great use of words! I highly recommend this book. We are moving on to the The Terrible Two Get Worse!
