The search is on! Annie has lost her fifth mitten this winter, and she's determined to find it. Accompanied by her faithful dog Oscar, Annie retraces the steps of her active day in the snow, always imagining terrifically silly things that might have happened to her mitten. But in the end, the truth behind the missing mitten mystery is even more delightful than Annie's wild guesses. Her mitten has found a place of honor . . . as the bright-red heart of a snowman!

This is a classic story that every child should read or be read to. Charming funny with a light mystery that most 46 year olds can solve themselves. They love this aspect! I recommend this book to any child but especially children under 7. Read full review
