The Mitten String – When her family invites a deaf woman and her baby to stay, Ruthie, a talented knitter of mittens, wonders how the mother will know if her child wakes in the night. The surprising answer inspires Ruthie to knit a special gift that offers great comfort to mother and baby—and to Ruthie herself.
The Mitten – Deep in the woods on the coldest day of winter a little boy drops his mitten. And that lost mitten stretches and stretches—and stretches—to provide shelter for many woodland creatures.
The Mitten – 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.
The Merry Christmas Mittens – While she laces up her skates by the pond, mischievous Jack Frost blows a wintry wind that sweeps Holly’s red, green, and white mittens away from her, and across the town. Holly’s mittens see a great deal through the day–from sledding, to caroling, to decorating gingerbread houses, to Santa himself, the Christmas mittens get a glimpse of how people and families all across the town celebrate Christmas and spread cheer to those they meet.
The Mitten: A Classic Pop-Up Folktale – A boy’s lost mitten is discovered by a group of curious woodland animals in this sweet retelling of the classic Ukranian folk tale.
M Is For Mitten: A Michigan Alphabet – Where was the first mile of highway paved? Who was the 38th President of the United States? What is the nation’s most remote National Park? What was the first bottled soda pop in this country? Find the answers to these questions and many more in M is for Mitten: A Michigan Alphabet.
The Mitten Tree – One snowy day an elderly woman, Sarah, watches children gathering at the bus stop. While they never seem to notice her, she notices them, especially one little boy who has no mittens. That night, Sarah knits the boy a pair of cozy mittens and places them on the blue spruce tree for him to discover. It soon becomes a game, with the children looking for new mittens on the mysterious tree every morning, and Sarah joyfully knitting new ones each night.
The Missing Mitten Mystery – Annie and her dog, Oscar, have had a busy day playing in the snow. Somehow Annie’s red mitten has disappeared in all the fun. They look high and low. . . . It’s not on the sledding hill, and it’s not by the snow castles. Maybe an eagle carried it off to keep its baby’s head warm. Or maybe a mouse is using it as a sleeping bag. When the sun goes down, Annie and Oscar have to give up their search and go inside. But when Annie looks out the window, something red catches her eye. . . .
Chicken in Mittens – When you have a pair of warm mittens and a great imagination, a snowy day is an invitation to explore and have fun. So Zoey the daring chicken and Sam the loyal pig are headed to the North Pole!
