More Knit Lit for Kids

If Carol hadn't included Sheep in a Shop, that would have been my first choice. My second, though, is Sheep in Wolves' Clothing, by Satoshi Kitamura.

The illustrations are all kind of off-center, and the plot is equally eccentric: while some sheep are swimming, wolves steal their fleeces (which they've left on the grass). The search for the missing fleeces involves a sheep detective and a half-dozen alley cats.

And don't overlook Ruth Hearson's Knitted by Grandma,

a pop-up book which enumerates Grandma's prodigious knitting output during a weeklong visit.
