Horn Book Review

An elderly knitter, a cat, a baby, and a dog each find pleasure in a pink hat before it reaches a girl who wears it to what looks like the 2017 Women's March (the event is mentioned only in an endnote), where "everyone else wore one, too!" Naturally, readers needn't be politically aware to enjoy following the pink hat's misadventures across otherwise black-and-white pages. (c) Copyright 2018.
