Every morning Molly's parents remind her to come home after school with her mittens, and every day Molly forgets. Nothing works--not Velcro, not crochet chains, not even duct tape! But, Molly is not alone. All the kids at school forget, and soon there is a mountain of mittens in lost-and-found that has grown out of control. WARNING- Lynn Plourde's story is so distractingly funny that you might misplace your own mittens!
PreS-Gr 2-Molly's parents caution her every morning not to forget her mittens. Molly remembers them during morning, lunch, and afternoon recess, but at the end of the day something always happens, and they land in the lost-and-found box, resulting in "Mittens, mittens, my oh my! A mountain of mittens piled up high." The situations that cause her to leave her mittens behind range from the mildly silly (the class turtle sneezed and needs them to keep warm) to over-the-top ridiculous (the school bus slides off the road, and the children use the crocheted strings their parents have attached to them in the vain hope of keeping them together to pull the bus back onto the road). Vane's watercolor and India ink illustrations are bright and busy and add to the fun. Pair this with Candace Christiansen's The Mitten Tree (Fulcrum, 1997) and Stuart J. Murphy's Missing Mittens (HarperCollins, 2001) for a winter-themed storytime, or read it before sending children off to search through those overflowing lost-and-found boxes for their own missing mittens.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
