When Hedgie sees a sock on the ground, he wears it as a hat and all the other animals are jealous and want one of their own. This book inspired my children to wear underwear as a hat, and anything else they could wear around and get a giggle from the adults. They loved this book!

All the animals try to fit into the mitten they find dropped
in the snow. Will the good knitting hold and stretch enough?
Beautiful illustrations, as always with Jan Brett.
Snøkrystall (Snowflake) patterns in the knits, traditional
Nordic clothing and decor- every picture is filled with detail
to illustrate the charming story.

Lalo the lamb loves everything about the boy who
watches over him and his flock. He tries to be just
like the boy, and dye his wool red like the shepherd’s
cheery sweater. Charming illustrations, charming story.
you’ll want a lamb just like Lalo.
