Jan Brett writes a beautiful story but the true star of the show are her gorgeous illustrations. I love how the stunning art in the central picture is augmented by the secondary story being told in the images in the side bar. She is a tee master of her craft. ( )

This a really great book for primary and k-2 readers. This is about a boy who loses his new mitten and many animals find it in the snow and snuggle up in it in order to stay warm. I love this book and it is really great for kids to learn about animals and how they all need to stay warm like we do. ( )
