Advance Praise for Hello, Crochet Friends!

 Immigration + crafting = A surprising take on a timely tale. Jonah Larson's story challenges our assumptions about kids with special needs, immigration, and gender roles with a book that is part memoir, part craft book, and all awesome.”

-Betsy Bird (A Fuse # 8 Production, School Library Journal)

If you are looking for a heart-warming story, look no further. The fact that this story is also about crocheting makes it all the more special for those of us who love to create with yarn and hook! … Jonah’s smile and joy are contagious, and his story (which is still being told!) is sure to restore your faith in the fact that even one person can make a difference in the global community!

—Jackie Daugherty (Editor, Crochet World Magazine)
