Where Did My Clothes Come From?
(Candlewick Aug. 4, 2015)
Fun retro illustrations entice kids to follow the thread and learn where their clothes had their start—and how they were put together.
Did you know that the cotton for your jeans was picked from a bush? How did the colorful wool in your sweater get from a sheep’s back to a ball of yarn? Where did your soccer uniform, your rain boots, and your fleece jacket come from? And what does recycling plastic bottles have to do with anything? Visit farms, forests, and factories all over the world to find out how everything you wear has a story behind it. Back matter includes an author’s note, an illustrator’s note, a bibliography, and an index.
