A winter tale about friendship…

indexThe Mitten

by Jan Brett

All Jan Brett books are uniquely special; there are 2 stories in each book! There is the main story, pictures and text that weave a delightful tale. AND, there is the picture story that wraps around the page and tells a different tale.

In this story, a mitten is lost in the woods and becomes a warm and snuggly spot for more forest animals than seems possible! After reading this book, gather up the stuffed animals in your house and act out the story using a pillow case or a blanket rolled into a bag. Change the ending! Which animal climbed in the mitten first? Next? Last?

Now check out the second story in the book! Tell the wrap around story to each other! And check out www.janbrett.com for more ideas!
