The Mitten Tree by Candace Christiansen


This is one of my favorite books. Not only is it appropriate for the winter months but it is a great story about kindness and giving.

Don't forget to include this gem while you are planing for the next couple of weeks. To help you create a great meaningful lesson here is my book review from last year listing skills and strategies that will help you with your planning.

Happy planning!

    I don't have this book, but I'm going to get it. We are in the middle of our winter unit. It will be a great addition. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful ideas.

    3. Hi Julia,
      Without spending thousands of dollars buying it you will just have to check libraries, used books stores and/ or ask others if you can borrow it. It is a great book, but I cannot believe anyone would spend that much money for it, that's CRAZY! Good luck finding it, I wish I could help more. If you do find it let us know where.
