The Mitten
A Ukrainian Folktale
Jan Brett

When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he goes on without realizing that it is missing.

One by one, woodland animals find the mitten and crawl in; first a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger
and o
thers, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse,
and what happens next makes a wonderfully funny climax.
As the story of the animals in the mitten unfolds, the reader can see Nicki in the borders of each page, 
walking through the woods unaware of what is going on.
Once again Jan Brett has created a dramatic and beautiful picture book in her distinctive style. 
She brings the animals to life with warmth and humor, and her illustrations are full of visual delights and 
details faithful to the Ukrainian tradition, from which the story comes.

There are excellent activity suggestions to accompany the book.
