Grandpa Ivy & the Wool

The Purple Day Podcast is the audio from our Monday episodes of Storytime in the Schoolhouse. Please note: Storytime is written and recorded for the screen. Some elements of Storytime will transfer better than others.

We hear a Grandpa Ivy story during Storytime the first week of every month. Today's story is by Becca Lane. 

Grandpa Ivy is watching sheep graze in the meadow by his house when he notices they are leaving little tufts of wool behind as they move through the meadow. There are little white dots here and there on the grass blades, bushes, and low-hanging branches! Grandpa Ivy collects the little bits of wool and brings them inside where he uses soap, hot water, and a lot of hard work to make a little square of felt. He then leaves the felt to dry outside in the sun. A little mouse finds it and thinks it would make the perfect blanket for the cold days of winter and gratefully takes it home with him.
