Last winter Zoe fell in love with this book from our library. Many of you may recognize the name as a book by Jan Brett but this is a different author. I think I may have requested this from the library from old classic children's reading lists I use to follow.
The Mitten by Alvin Tresselt is a wonderful story about a little boy who is out collecting fire wood on a very cold winter day. Somehow he drops a mitten and one by one animals move in making it their home from the cold. By the way this book is written it illustrates how a very old Ukranian Folk tale was passed down from generation to generation.
