This is about a little boy who has mittens and they are white, his grandma doesn't want him to lose them because they are white and match the snow. He loses one and then a ton of animals squeeze into it and he finds it and it is all stretched out. I would recommend to kindergarteners.
When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he goes on without realizing that it is missing. One by one, woodland animals find it and crawl in; first, a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse and what happens next makes for a wonderfully funny climax.
The Mitten is one of Jan Brett’s stand-alone children’s books that’s based on a Ukrainian folk tale. It tells the story of a young boy named Nicki who begs his Baba for a pair of white mittens. She warns that if he loses one in the snow it will be difficult to find, but he’s insistent that they must be white. No sooner does he have his new mittens, than he goes out to play and drops one. He obliviously continues to play, while all the woodland animals come to investigate this object. One animal after another decides it will make a warm, cozy home until the poor mitten is stuffed to bursting. It’ll be so much more fun to find out on your own, so I won’t reveal what happens next. Suffice it to say that it has an amusing ending.
I’ve had my eye on Jan Brett’s books for a while because of the lovely covers and the high ratings her work usually garners. The Mitten turned out to be a nice introduction to her work. It tells a cute, humorous story. It’s perhaps a bit far-fetched that so many animals could fit inside one small mitten, but I’m sure it will entertain kids with it’s silliness. What stands out most about the story, though, are the beautiful illustrations. I love picture books where the illustrations can practically tell the story on their own and this is just such a book. Each of the main pictures that go along with the text span two pages, but along the sides there are smaller inset illustrations that show the reader what’s going on peripherally, which I thought was ingenious. The pictures alone made this worth the read. The Mitten was an enjoyable book that I hope to share with my grandkids and that has left me looking forward to checking out more of Ms. Brett’s work.
A beautiful story of a lost mitten that incorporates many story elements in pictures, animals and rich cultural components-clothing, homes, etc

Several animals sleep snugly in Nicki's lost mitten until the bear sneezes.
