Oh no! A lost red mitten. Rabbit and Mouse want to return the mitten, but first they’ll have to figure out who it belongs to. Squirrel? No. Badger? Nope. As they continue through the forest and meet new creatures, Rabbit and Mouse are excited to find the real owner. They’re doing a good deed!
But when the time comes, can Rabbit give up the mitten? Red is his favorite color, after all!

Simple panels and targeted vocabulary will aid beginning readers as they enjoy the gentle banter between true friends.
