A fresh, spirited rendition of a best-selling read-aloud classic.
When a little boy loses a mitten in the snow, a passing squirrel finds it's the perfect place to warm his icy toes. So he sqe-e-e-e-zes inside. But he's not the only animal with that idea. How many animals can fit inside a little boy's mitten?
Aylesworth's rollicking rhyming refrains and McClintock's delightfully expressive characters are sure to make this book everychild's storytime favorite.
