    1. A cute little book about a kid who gets an ugly sweater from his grandmother and he hates it and refuses to wear it until his grandmother comes for the holidays and explains the meaning of the sweater Then the kid loves the sweater and starts wearing it I don t know how old this kid is, but I have a hard time believing that a kid is going to start wearing a sweater he hates just because his grandmother told him the meaning of it I don t have kids so I could be wrong.

    3. This is a sweet story about a boy, his Grandma, and a sweater He spends the whole story hating his sweater, but grows to love it as he learns the story behind its creation.This book is contemporary realistic fiction, as it is a fictional story that could have happened.I would use this book to teach about the mentor trait of ideas The story centers around the idea of a terrible sweater that Cameron will never, ever wear For writing instruction, I would use the title of this book as a model of a t [...]

    8. This five star rating does not come from me I would give it a 4 , but from my just turned 4 year old son who received this for his birthday He has requested this EVERY SINGLE NIGHT since that day, and he shows absolutely no sign of tiring of it What makes this book special in addition to the knitting pattern to make the truly terribly horrible sweater yourself at home is the way that the multiple relationships that Cameron has with his immediate family, his friends, his stuff and, of course, his [...]

    9. Cameron s Grandma Susan knits him a sweater for his birthday, a truly terrible horrible sweater, and he won t wear it But when she comes to visit for Christmas and explains all the love and memories that were knit into the sweater, he decides it s not so horrible after all It s a sweet tale and really gets to the heart of a child who doesn t like a gift Cameron comes across as a bit spoiled and ungrateful, but I suppose it s an accurate reflection of most children at that age The knitting instru [...]

    10. As a knitter, I wasn t 100% thrilled with this book just because I feel like if you re going to knit something for a person as a gift you should know your audience, and clearly a little boy isn t going to be like omg, a tacky striped sweater, how special So it kind of irked me that everyone expected him to appreciate it, rather than the grandma just knitting him something that he would like.Moving past my knitter issues, I thought the story ultimately was very sweet, and I kind of love that ther [...]

    11. So the boy hates the sweater his grandmother made for him tries to destroy it until grandma comes to visit and explains how she picked all the colors and thought of him while knitting it for him It s sweet in the end because the boy changes his perspective about the sweater Still, it seems like a guilt manipulation to make kids appreciate gifts that they don t like I m luke warm about this one.

    12. t was a sweet little story that we both enjoyed I think kids could definitely relate to getting a present that hate but have to pretend to like It also shows how special a handmade gift can be, but the most important message was how much Cameron s grandma loved him, even though she lived far away.The illustrations were pretty and kind of soft They weren t outstanding, but I did like the picture of Grandma arriving at the train station.

    13. It started out as a basic little boy story who thought the sweater that his grandmother knit for him was truly terribly horrible, but when his grandmother told him why she chose the colors in the stripes he loved the sweater as much as he loved his grandmother Debbie Macomber always puts a little something special in each of her stores.

    14. I have read several Debbie Macomber books and when I saw this I wanted to read it I just read to my kids and I loved it I thought it was an adorable book and showed the value of a Grandma even if she made you a truly terribly horrible sweater that you later love and value I think I may have to buy this book for my mom.

    17. I am a crochers so I know the time and energy it take to make something I am sure knitting is the same premise When I was a kid, my grandma crocheted a pink sweater I hated it I wore it once But I still have it, because it is precious to me even though I don t love it

    18. I m not a fan of this fuzzy style of illustration And if I don t like a picture book s illustrations it s lost than half the battle Not a bad story, in which a boy learns the value of a handmade gift, but, for a picture book, a strange combination of simple story and excessive wordiness.
