The children loved reading The Mitten by Jan Brett and making their own paper mittens with their favorite animals drawn inside of it. They love the beautifully illustrated animals and the silly story of them all crawling inside a boy's small mitten.
Corduroy by Don Freeman is the first in a long series of picture books about little teddy bear. In this one he's living in an apartment store, forgotten on a shelf long enough he's lost one of his buttons. This book is part of my childhood!
