    One thought on “The Mitten”

    1. Jan Brett s The Mitten is according to her informative author s note a combination, an original fusion of several similar Ukrainian folktales in some of these versions, a group of shivering, cold animals find refuge in a discarded pot, whilst in others, it is a huntsman s lost mitten providing shelter, who then unfortunately also starts shooting at the animals inhabiting his mitten when he goes out into the forest looking for it and discovers that it has become a winter den for a variety of faun [...]

    2. To be honest, I felt little enthusiasm for reading this book, but it s one of six books for the Children s Books group s Picture Books Club December winter themed books, so I read it.I m so glad that I did It s delightful I loved all the animals, the boy and his grandmother, their house, the snowy outdoors, and most of all, the humor The illustrations are very appealing I loved the animals and I enjoyed all the detail in each picture, and the mini pictures that reveal what is about to happen on [...]

This is the first Jan Brett book I ever read, and not only did I enjoy the story, but the illustrations absolutely captivated me When I use this in story time now, I have the kids anticipate what will appear on the next page by looking at the sub story occurring in the side boxes on each page While Alvin Tresselt did the earliest picture book version of this Ukrainian folktale that I know of, Jan Brett s is better known because of her beautiful illustrations A perfect winter readaloud, and highl [...]

    7. Splendid, highly detailed illustrations I don t know about the story something like six animals all crowd into a single mitten I wasn t born yesterday I was born six weeks ago But Mom says it s just fun and whimsical and sometimes with books we have to suspend our disbelief and use our imaginations Fair enough M

    8. This is a perfect children s book in every way The text is short and simple, and the illustrations tell part of the story I love the last picture I prefer the board book edition it is shorter and doesn t contain a lot of extra verbiage, perfect for a young child s attention span.

    9. This morning while walking my dog I temporarily lost one of my mittens When I discovered it had fallen out of my pocket, I decided it would be easier to continue our walk and to look for the lost mitten on the way back I had plenty of time to reflect As Dude munched on frozen deer poop I thought of all the woodland creatures that inhabit Poplar Forest Besides the deer there are foxes, squirrels, rabbits, mice, skunks, and who knows what else I imagined one of them finding the mitten and taking i [...]

    10. The wonderful Jan Brett s version of a Ukrainian fairy tale The Mitten is satisfying in so many ways I have used it wish students of a variety of levels as a simple and charming fairy tale to older students studying the form and learning how powerful the art of illustration is and how critical it is in the successful performance of a story.These illustrations are magical as they tell the story of a common object in an uncommon way and reveal the magic that resides in the most ordinary of objects [...]

    11. The mitten was a retelling of a Ukrainian winter Folktale I read this one to my little girl who enjoyed the animals and the snow I enjoyed the illustrations than the folktale itself I thought it was a creative touch to add the mitten windows which allowed you to catch a glimpse of what was going on inside or outside of the cottage Although not a Christmas tale, the colors chosen to create the illustration definitely reminded me of Christmas.The story is cute a lost glove and animals of all shap [...]

    12. When a Ukrainian boy drops his brand new white mitten in the snow, a bunch of wild animals moves into it Adapted from a Ukrainian folk tale For this picture book, the typical Jan Brett sidebars are used to relate the boy s story while retaining the page s focus on the animals Until, near the end, something happens to reverse the lenses Solid story with beautiful illustrations, though not quite as good as The Hat.

    13. Reading this Folktale book as a child was delightful for me This book is about friendship and helping one another, or that s what I always got from it That is how my past teachers taught us from this book We would read it only in the winter I love the illustrations The animals are kid friendly and look happy The colors are kind of dark, I think mainly because of the season in the year Winter.

    14. The Mitten is a funny story It teaches children the different names of the animals It Shows how they all tried to fit in one mitten, which teaches them how to share even though they all squeezed in.

    15. I remember reading this book as a kid and thinking it was hilarious It came back in at the library today and I totally took a moment to reread it It was still hilarious I also loved the style of artwork used.
