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. ( )

Who thought that so many animals could fir inside a single snow white mitten? It doesn't surprise me at all that some of the best known Ukrainian folktales are all about Winter, because it is the dominant season of the year and stories of miraculous survival would have given people something to think about through the cold months. Brett's lush illustration of each page tells the current action and the detailed borders presage te coming story. The amount of detail that she includes is likely to please and astound both parents and children for ages for come. ( )
