  1. Nell Hardman says:

    I really liked this book because it had lots of animals in it and it was funny.

  2. Hannah Hartland says:

    I loved the mitten book because all the animals climbed into the mitten. And I also liked it when the bear sneezed and the mitten flew into the air and the boy caught it.

  3. Annabel Pickstone says:

    I liked this book because, I like animals, it was fun to hear a story about them. (Feb 2018)

  4. Leo Trelfer says:

    I liked it when the bear sneezed!

  5. aroberts says:

    I liked it when the granny saw that one of the mittens was bigger at the end of the story. I liked it when Nicki found his mitten floating, and he caught it. The rat got on the bear’s nose and he sneezed. I liked it when the mole found a comfy space. I liked it whenever Nicki said to his grandmother ‘see, I’ve got both of my mittens.’

  6. eroberts says:

    I like that the animals can fit right next to a hedgehog without getting prickled. I noticed that at the end, the mitten was much bigger because it was such a tight squeeze. I thought ‘how would the bear and the owl possibly fit in one mitten?’ But they did!

  7. Ms Hattingh says:

    We liked how they all got into the mitten. We all laughed when the bear sneezed.

    When a boy loses his mitten loads of animals try to get in. I really like the drawings.

  11. Oscar Freeman says:

    It was a bit good. I thought hedgehogs were the biggest things that could fit in a mitten.

  12. Henry Roberts says:

    The Mitten is a book about a boy and his mitten, which gets lost. I liked this book. I liked when the bear went achoo and all the animals fell out and the mitten flew in the air. It was really funny.

  13. Rian Koehler says:

    I liked it when Grandma got confused about the size of the mittens at the end.

  14. Caelan Freeman-Walshe says:

    I think that The Mitten is good because I thought that the mitten was going to burst.
