My 4 year-old loves this book. One by one the woodland animals snuggle into a boy's lost mitten to keep warm until the tiniest mouse comes along. It's a great book to read aloud together. Some of the verse repeats as each animal comes along giving us the opportunity to "read" the story together.

Love this version of this story, classic illustrations with lots of detail. Not as mean as the Jan Brett version. Exploding mitten is better than just stretched out mitten.

"One day, while sledding in the snow, a little boy loses his red woolen mitten. Meanwhile, a passing squirrel finds that the cozy mitten is the perfect place to warm his icy toes. So he sque-e-eezes inside. But the squirrel is not the only animal with that idea. How many animals can fit inside the little boy's mitten?" Having read and re-read The Mitten by Jan Brett many many times, I was not very excited to learn of another remake. But Jim Aylesworth does a wonderful job with the tale -- this book is perfect for storytime as children can help with the telling because of the repetitive answer that each animal gives when asked to make room: No room, no room, no room, go away!"

This is a story of reluctant friendships. It's cold outside and when you've been cold yourself how can you possibly allow someone else to freeze. The woodland animals and the mitten stretch and tuck, and stretch and tuck, and cuddle and warm each other until.... It's a fun story with beautiful illustrations beginning with a boy and a lost mitten. A good read for a quiet, cold winter afternoon.
