I was introduced to this lovely book by a fellow stall holder at Borough Market; it was his favourite book as a child and he brought it in to show me. I loved it too and recommend it to anyone who reads to their children.
Flax: growing, harvesting, processing & weaving
This is a story about a little Russian boy impatiently waiting for his linen shirt to “grow”. It explains the whole life history of flax, from sowing, through to harvesting and processing the stems into flax fibre, spinning and on to weaving and making a little linen shirt
It is a lovely tale and beautifully illustrated. Ideal for reading aloud. Targeted at 4-8 years old. Usually available on Amazon.
