Woollard is made of wool. If you love wool, you will love Woollard. He wants to teach you a little bit about wool. There are printed books available and a few accessories for kids, parents and teachers to play and make with wool. In each story of happy-go-lucky curiosity, the stitched illustrations turn around a piece of red wool felt that is attached to the center page of the book.
For every Woollard book sold, $1 is donated to Slide Ranch so kids who visit can see, touch, snuggle, shear, felt, weave and stitch wool. Slide Ranch is dedicated to "planting kids in nature"...it's an amazing organization and they love sheep as much as we do. ; )
There are more characters in The Stuff Kids series, Woollard is just the first one to say hi! Page is made of paper and learns to fold herself into an origami bird after reading every book in her bookstore. Bob is made of cork and moves from Portugal to California to work on a vineyard and smoosh grapes.
