    1. MYSTERYThe Missing Mitten Mystery is an adorable little story geared towards the early elementary ages. The main character in the story searches high and low for his lost mitten. He retraces his steps in hopes of finding it but only discovers other objects (and memories) there. Along the way, he uses his imagination as to where it can be or what might have happened to it. I found it to be so innocent that he wanted to plant a glove to grow another so he can make a pair and then he would give tho [...]



    2. My kindergarteners enjoyed it. Some were quite serious about the main character’s flights of fancy (maybe a mouse was using the missing mitten as a sleeping bag, I read. “I don’t think mice need ‘em,” was one kid’s comment.) Others laughed at the idea of a mitten tree or an eaglet hat.

    5. This is a cute story; it's a nice book to read when we are in the middle of a hot summer. You can almost feel how cold the snow is. Warm mittens aren't exactly appropriate where we live, but you can appreciate the frustrating search for a lost item.

    12. This cute mystery picture book reminds me of The Mitten by Jan Brett.

    16. Booklist December 15, 2012 (Vol. 109, No. 8) Preschool-Grade 1. The perfect day is a snow day, and Berger, with very special art, portrays it as perfect indeed. Using a delicate collage made from old paper ephemera—catalogs, notebooks, letters, and newspaper and book pages—the look is distinctive. As for the story, well, it’s more of a mood. A group of children, almost puppetlike in appearance, run through the snow: Emma is the first to make tracks, Leo skies, Sasha and Max throw snowballs [...]
