In the classic Gene Zion picture book, No Roses For Harry, our favorite dirty dog unintentionally gives his sweater for a bird's nest. In a case of life imitating art, we discovered the mysterious missing knitting high in the playground tree. Squirrels had unyarnbombed the lightpost and dragged the knitting up to their nest.
Most of the preschool students know the stories about Harry the Dirty Dog, and immediately caught the excitement. What a lot of work it must have been for the squirrels to get the swatch all the way up there without snagging it on a branch!
