Recommended for: parents reading with their children

We've read Jim Aylesworth's version of this story (The Mitten) and so when this book was picked as a December read for the Children's Books group Picture-book club, we were excited to read another version of this story. We enjoyed both of the books very much and as always, we really love Jan Brett's illustrations. The details and little hints of what's to come in the border pictures are a feast for the eyes. We read the 20th Anniversary edition, which includes an author's note at the beginning. It describes the research that went into making this story and I appreciate her attention to detail, like adding a stork's nest to the cottage roof for good luck. Overall, it's a great story to read aloud with children.
