Description

 

See below for English description.

Par une belle journée d'hiver, une petite fille et son papa jouent dehors. Mais elle perd sa mitaine et il faut rentrer à la maison pour la remplacer. De retour à l'extérieur, ils découvrent qu'un oiseau a trouvé la mitaine perdue et y a prélevé quelques brins de laine afin de construire son nid. Quelle joie de partager avec autrui!

 

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 cool, 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 mixed-media artwork by award-winning illustrator Irene Luxbacher to tell a deeper story about warmth, sharing and discovery on a crisp winter day.

Original title: Mittens to Share
