review á eBook or Kindle ePUB Ò Jan Brett The Mitten review ´ 103 Jan Brett Ò 3 read Enjoy the charm and humor in the portrayal of the animals as they make room for e. Jan Brett s The Mitten is according to her informative author s note a combination an original fusion of several similar Ukrainian folktales in some of these versions a group of shivering cold animals find refuge in a discarded pot whilst in others it is a huntsman s lost mitten providing shelter who then unfortunately also starts shooting at the animals inhabiting his mitten when he goes out into the forest looking for it and discovers that it has become a winter den for a variety of fauna But while I have indeed and oh so much enjoyed reading about the genesis of Jan Brett s personal version of her The Mitten I do kind of wish that instead of just telling us showing readers how she used several different Ukrainian folktale versions of the mitten story and why she chose to include and not include various aspects such as the fact that she obviously did not want to write a story where someone actually ends up shooting at the sheltering animals Jan Brett had also listed the specific and actual titles and literary sources of the tales of which she had made use to create her own adapted and retold version of The MittenHowever my minor uibbles that there is no list of specific tale sources and titles uite notwithstanding both textually and illustratively The Mitten is indeed truly magical sweetly entertaining and yes even gently humorous with a rabbit a mole a European hedgehog an owl a badger a fox and a bear sharing the warmth of young Nicki s lost white mitten stretching and restretching it until finally a diminutive mouse makes the bear sneeze dislodging all of the animals in one twirling swoop A fun and cumulative tale is The Mitten and as such perfect for an entertaining read aloud especially in winter with accompanying illustrations that both realistically and imaginatively present and and show a heavy and snowy Ukrainian winter in all its white glory as well as the diverse animals that one by one find refuge shelter and warmth in Nicki s mitten

review á eBook or Kindle ePUB Ò Jan Brett The Mitten review ´ 103 Jan Brett Ò 3 read Ach newcomer in the mitten and sprawl in the snow after the big sneeze The Horn Bo. I have read many folktales from around the world but this is the first time that I have read a folktale from Ukraine The Mitten is a Ukrainian folktale retold by Jan Brett and it is about how a young boy named Nicki loses his mitten in the snow and his lost mitten soon becomes a host to a great number of forest animals The Mitten is easily one of the cutest and most beautiful folktales ever told for childrenJan Brett has certainly outdone herself in this book as she beautifully writes and illustrates this cute Ukrainian folktale Jan Brett makes this folktale extremely cute and hilarious at the same time as the animals of the forest all try to get inside a small mitten to stay warm for the winter and I have to say that at first this story sounded a bit too strange because I was wondering to myself about how can all those animals fit into one small mitten But hey it is a folktale right And many folktales were pretty surreal but that is what made these kinds of stories cult classics in my eyes Jan Brett has also done a great job at illustrating this book as the illustrations are realistic and beautiful I loved the way that Jan Brett illustrates the snow covering the forest and you can see the snow hanging off the trees in the forest But the image that stood out the most for me was the image of all the animals trying to snuggle up inside the mitten which kept on getting bigger and bigger as animals came in man Baba s stitching must have been really strong The Mitten is clearly one of those folktales that children will easily laugh along with if they love strange folktales about animals getting into one small mitten This is surely one of the most imaginative and adorable folktales I have ever read and I am sure that many children will easily enjoy it as much as I have I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book that would cause parents to worry
