Google The Mitten and you get 396,000 results. Imagine how many results you’d get on Pinterest! I think it’s fair to say that this book is a classic with lots of followers. If you haven’t treated your children to this story yet, now is a great time. We have two more months of winter, snow, and lost mittens!
There are many versions of this folktale that have been told and written over the years. I think there’s something magical about Jan Brett’s adaptation. The language is rich and the illustrations keep you glued to each spread trying to uncover every detail.
This is a story that you’ll be asked to read over and over again. It will stimulate your children’s senses and feed their imaginations with all the exciting things that can happen when a mitten goes missing!
