About the book: 

From an award-winning historical fiction author comes a fascinating look at America's home front during World War I

When his dad leaves to fight overseas during World War I, Mikey wants to do something big to help. A short time later, his teacher tells the class about a Knitting Bee in Central Park to knit clothing supplies for the troops. Mikey and his friends are quick to point out that knitting is for girls, but when the girls challenge them to a knitting competition, the boys jump at the chance to prove themselves.
Award-winning historical fiction author Deborah Hopkins makes history relatable by showing how even small hands can make big contributions. Paired with Steven Guarnaccia's retro-style illustrations and gorgeous color palette, this book is sure to win over crafters and history buffs of all ages.
