  • About The Mitten: One by one, woodland animals find a mitten and crawl in …  first a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Several animals sleep snugly in the lost mitten until a bear sneezes!
  • Volunteers will be reading to 3-5 year-old preschool students, so be prepared to have fun and engage a young audience.
