Review of “The Mitten” by Jan Brett

The illustrations in this book are magnificent, such intricate details with decorative borders etc.  Really beautiful!  This book is also a smaller size board book also in a landscape layout.  

The story itself is great - about a boy who asks his Grandma to knit him some white mittens even though he is warned they will get lost in the white snow if he takes them off.  Well, he loses one and animals discover it one by one and all snuggle inside.  Rather comical all the animals that fit inside the one glove until someone sneezes and the glove goes flying and the boy finds it again.  Love this type of story as it’s very imaginative!  

I would definitely recommend this story.
