When a little boy loses a mitten in the snow, a passing squirrel finds it's the perfect place to warm his icy toes. So he sqe-e-e-e-zes inside. But he's not the only animal with that idea. How many animals can fit inside a little boy's mitten?

Aylesworth's rollicking rhyming refrains and McClintock's delightfully expressive characters are sure to make this book everychild's storytime favorite.

(Sample of text)

"'Br-r-r-r-r-rrrr!' said the squirrel.

'My toes are cold as ice!

This mitten looks so cozy,

and warm toes would feel so nice!'"

Review: The Mitten

User Review  - Keziah - Goodreads

(Traditional Literature/Picture Book) I didn't recognize it at first, but this book is another version of "The Mitten" by Jan Brett! The story is nearly the same, but the illustrations are very different from her style. Read full review

Review: The Mitten

User Review  - Janet - Goodreads

I like how this one is written, and the illustrations are great (expressions as they all try to squeeze into the mitten). I much prefer this version to Jan Brett's, especially for a younger child. Read full review
