The Mitten by Jan Brett

Here in North Carolina it feels nothing like winter!  Our plants are confused, trees are starting to bloom and daisies are popping up!  As a matter of fact the news meteorologist says our high temperature today will be 70 degrees!!!  I guess I shouldn’t complain but I would at least like to see a dusting of snow or low enough temperatures to make my favorite big pot of vegetable beef soup.

Nonetheless, my group of kiddos are busily wrapping up our unit on winter with watching the online story read by none other than Jan Brett herself over at Barnes & Noble website, The Mitten.

I politely asked Nikki over at Melon Headz Illustrating if she would be so kind to draw a few woodland creatures to go along with the story so I could make a cute flannel board set for my kiddos.  She was more than happy to do it!  If you want to get any of her adorable sets just click the hyperlink above…she’s awesome!
