When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he goes on without realizing that it is missing.

One by one, woodland animals find it and crawl in; first, a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse and what happens next makes for a wonderfully funny climax.

As the story of the animals in the mitten unfolds, the reader can see Nicki in the boarders of each page, walking through the woods unaware of what is going on.

Once again Jan Brett has created a dramatic and beautiful picture book in her distinctive style. She brings the animals to life with warmth and humor, and her illustrations are full of visual delights and details faithful to the Ukrainian tradition from which the story comes.

    It is a cute story. I love all the animals in the story. My favorite part is when the bear sneezes and all the animals fly out of the mitten. Then the boy's mitten is all stretched out from all the animals laying in there.

      I like it because it is fun and I like when the mitten returns to the boy and he doesn't know what made it stretch out.

        I loved this book! I recommend this book to both boys and girls because it is a fantastic family story for all ages. It is about a boy who got white mittens and then lost one in the snow. Lots of animals find it but in the end he finds it too!!!!!!!!! I hope you like it!
