Can a book be part of your snow dance?

Behind the fourth door of my Advent calendar is a book that evokes fond kindergarten memories for all three of my urchins. Over the years each of them acted out The Mitten in the winter class play, using puppets on sticks to depict the various animals who take refuge from the snow in one very stretched out mitten.

The sunny girl asked me to choose "a snowy book" for the calendar today, because she is hoping for snow this weekend. Here's hoping her wish comes true!


  1. I know someone who knows this lady. She is a pseudo aunt to my friend's kids nd they have lots of signed books and artwork by her...very cool! She is very talented. Thanks for sharing...

  2. Ashleigh, I love the way she illustrates her stories. Is she your "brush with greatness?";)
