The Mitten

9 minutes

When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he goes on without realizing that it is missing. One by one, woodland animals find it and crawl in. First, a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger, and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse. Based on the children's book by Jan Brett. This title is presented in American Sign Language by the Rocky Mountain Deaf School.
