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 more 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 shapes and sizes seeking refuge from the cold.
