Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"playful and engaging...distinctive illustrations are filled with warm colors and eye-catching patterns...storytime or laptime winter fun" SLJ School Library Journal

"mixes imagination with bounce...Good for story hours...shows how...enjoyment can be derived from a very simple item." BOOKLIST Booklist, ALA

Children's Literature
Cheerful, playful, bright, and delightful, the story celebrates the simple life of one mitten, joined later in the story by its match. Rhyming text easy on the ears reveals all the mitten's possibilities. Daisy the dog follows the tale told in various rooms of a familiar house cluttered with the life of a typical child. Two mittens are better than one, and finding mittens on the hands of a friend is quite a treat. The quickly-read story is a simple celebration of favorite winter activities. Everyday objects illustrated with charm will prompt young children to ask for rereading. Because the text rhymes in unexpected ways, there is apt to be no complaint about such opportunities. In Maggie Smith fashion, bold colors from a warm palette make each page a charming view of childhood pleasures. Readers might also look for Book! by this talented duo. Between the two artists, verbal and visual, childhood is given a fine, fresh, and simple hooray. 2004, Clarion books, Ages 3 to 7.
