One by one, animals in a snowy forest crawl into Nicki's lost white mitten to get warm until the bear sneezes, sending the animals flying up and out of the mitten. On each turn of the page, signature borders inspired by Ukrainian folk art hint at what animal is coming next.

My 4 year olds loved this book. It is a lovely, somewhat silly story and give the kids clues as to what will happen next.

Love this story and the accompanying illustrations. The side panels that show Nicki traversing through the winter wonderland, unaware of what is happening with his lovely mitten, are funny and add a nice depth to the story.

Well-written, well-drawn, and with a very cute story, this is one fable for everyone to read. The boarder patterns and pictures, add that little extra something to this particular copy, for they show what they boy is up to, while giving a sneak peak to the next animal. The animals while realistically drawn, have some very expressive facial features. Details of the stretching mitten, make this seemingly impossible action look real.

A great folktale to read to your kids on a cold winter's day. A snow white mitten, lovingly stitched by Nicki's grandmother, becomes a winter refuge for various animals in the forest.
