Gold Gato, December 25, 2012 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
Taking its source from an old Ukrainian story, this tale is told via wonderfully wintry drawings by Jan Brett, who has a knack for telling a story with various frames. Grandmother Baba knows that knitting a snow white mitten will mean it will get lost quickly once her grandson goes outside, but it allows for the adventure to ensue for the woodland animals living near their house. As each animal finds the mitten and tries to get inside for warmth, the wool expands with each accompanying load of fur, making for a hilarious result.

This is a perfect illustrated book for a reading to young ones who are past saturation with Santa and Rudolph but still want something for the season. For me, it means cold and the Old Country, which means a trip on New Year's Day to the best old world deli for some shakshuka and challah toast. A tradition in the making.

Book Season = Winter (balls of wool ready for knitting)

This was the cutest little book. We read this book during one of my college classes about children's literature. I plan on adding this to my collection.

Mitten a Ukrainian Folktale Used Hardcover

Product details 32 pages PENGUIN PUTNAM TRADE - English 9780399219207 Reviews:
"Synopsis" by ,
Millions of readers have fallen in love with Jan Brett’s The Mitten, and over 2.5 million copies have been sold since publication in 1989. This striking oversized anniversary edition with a silver foil jacket and a fresh image of the woodland animals will attract fans old and new, and adult collectors of Jan Brett’s books.

Set in a snowy forest, the fun begins when, one by one, animals crawl into Nicki’s lost white mitten to get warm until the bear sneezes, sending the animals flying up and out of the mitten. On each turn of the page, Jan hints at what animal is coming next in her signature borders, inspired by Ukrainian folk art.

"Synopsis" by ,
"Grandmother knits snow-white mittens that Nikki takes on an adventure. Readers will enjoy the charm and humor in the portrayal of the animals as they make room for each newcomer in the mitten and sprawl in the snow after the big sneeze."

-The Horn Book
