Children’s Book Committee – July Pick

July 1, 2015
Boys Don’t Knit (In Public)
by T.S. Easton
Feiwel & Friends, 2014
When Ben Fletcher, 17, inadvertently signs up  for a knitting class as part of his probation, he has a hard time keeping it from his friends and family.
Our Young Reviewer says:
This story is mainly about gender roles, because a boy starts knitting and feels embarrassed about it. You don’t have to stick with your gender role. I like that people are starting to explore themselves and see and do new things. So they need to know it’s good to do what they want and not to feel pressured by society and other people’s beliefs. The author should make more books!
