Mittens by Lola M. Schaefer is an I Can Read My First Shared Reading book, illustrated by Susan Kathleen Hartung. It may be a good independent beginnner book for 1st grade or advanced Kindergarten, as the pictures help the reader sort out the words. I think the writers intended for the parent to read along first and then give their kid a go at it themselves. Anyways, it’s a cute book about a kitten’s first day in a new home.
What I disliked:
It’s what I expected for a very beginner’s reading book.
What I liked:
The story line is cute and talks about feelings of being scared in a new place. Very simple for a new reader to start building the confidence. I believe there are other Mittens books to consider if your child likes this one.
Where to find it:
I have no idea where I purchased mine. A garage sale maybe? You can find yours on Amazon for less than $4 here.
