A classic winter story, The Mitten is a book adapted and illustrated by Jan Brett that tells a traditional Ukrainian story. It’s a silly story about a white mitten lost in the snow that is discovered by many animals that decide to share the warmth it offers. The beautiful illustrations show as each animal crawls one by one into the ever expanding mitten. My kids really enjoy the illustrations in this book and like that you can which animal will arrive next in the artwork around the border of the page. My favorite is seeing the hedgehog’s quills sticking through the mitten. Have you read this book to your littles? What was your favorite part?
