A cozy winter read to be shared again and again.

The wonder of the winter season is brought to vivid life, in this deceptively simple tale of a young girl who loses her mitten on a crisp, snowy day. Her disappointment is soon swept away when she’s back indoors looking for a new pair, exploring the colours, and textures of an overstuffed box of family mittens. Outside again with dad, she makes an even more endearing discovery that will warm the hearts of all readers.

The spare, poetic text allows the gorgeous multi-media artwork by award-winning illustrator Irene Luxbacher, to tell a deeper story about warmth, sharing, and discovery on a crisp winter day.
