Mittens to Share is coming out this Fall in French and English
A testament to the small, quiet times that become the most treasured moments in a family.
A child and parent play outside on a winter day when the little one loses a favourite mitten. The happiness is temporarily shattered, and parent and child go back inside. The child looks through a chest for a replacement pair and finally discovers a mitten that will do. When they head back outside, they find the lost mitten and also see that it has been discovered by a bird (seen at the beginning of the story), which is now incorporating a piece of its colourful yarn into its nest. With lost mitten and lost smiles found again, and mittens shared in novel ways, joy is restored to a perfect winter day.
