I Had a Favorite Hat by Boni Ashburn

The narrator of this charming picture book loves her summer hat, but as the seasons change, her hat isn't always appropriate for every occasion. She must use her crafting skills to turn the hat into a work of art, perfect for every season and holiday. Featuring the same characters from the first book, along with the hip, eye-catching art that won it so many fans, this book is perfect for young crafters and their stylish parents.


Children will enjoy the idea of taking a hat and with a little tape, ribbon, and ingenuity decorating it to help celebrate important days. --Maryann H. Owen, Children s Literature Specialist, Mt. Pleasant, WI School Library Journal
