This story is special to me because I saw how much my preschoolers enjoyed pretending to be the animals that climbed into the mitten. I was so proud to see them participate when we made the story interactive. We created a mitten and each child was chose an animal they would pretend to be, they were each given a face mask with the picture of that animal and got into the pretend mitten when their turn came. They continued to listen as the story was read and when the animals popped the mitten because it could not hold another animal..not even the smallest one... they all rolled out of the mitten.. It was as much a time of much laughter and smiles for those participating and those watching...Great story time book that can easily come alive! When I saw this book again recently I had to read it again.

Dr. Laura Meyers I love it when a child connects to a read aloud too, and Jan Brett's books have tendancy to do that for young readers. If they enjoyed this one, they would probably enjoy some of Jan Brett's other work ... would make for a great author/illustrator study!
