The Mitten, by Jan Brett
post, that Jan Brett has a great website with all kinds of cool projects you can print. This is the one that we picked. We cut out two mittens and stapled all around them so that it would hold the animals, then we printed out the animals and Paige colored them. I cut them out and she was able to put them in the mitten, just like in the story. Paige loved it and carried the mitten around for several days and told everyone about it. It took me until today for her to forget about it enough that I could finally throw it away. I know from teaching that authors and illustrators and even publishers do all kinds of free stuff like Jan Brett's website to promote their books, I don't know why I don't think of it more often and take advantage of it!
