Illustrated in full color. What magic can be found in a piece of string? The magic of a million incarnations--when the string is found by an imaginative little girl who spies it on the sidewalk!Slither, slish.  It could be the dance of a scaly dragon.  Or--push-a-pat--the top of a long great wall. Unique and beautiful illustrations, inspired by Asian brush-stroke paintings, transform the simple thread into fireworks, thunderclouds, and even the moon. At last the girl returns to show her waiting classmates her newfound treasure: a "squiggle of a line"! Lavish illustrations and simple text make this an engaging read-aloud, sure to charm any playful child.

A great book to encourage play - and show kids all the fun they can have with a simple piece of yarn!

Great for an interactive story time. Give each kid a length of red yarn and have them copy the girl's movements. Afterwards, let them try their own activities.
