Summary:

Comment:

Knit Your Bit is an illustrated book for young people that combines real pieces of history with a fun, fictional tale. Based on a real “Knit-in” event at Central Park in 1918, it’s a story about a young boy who wants to contribute to the war effort but thinks that knitting is only for girls. The book shows readers that making a lasting contribution is as easy as trying something new. Heroes don’t always carry a gun.
