Books about boots, mittens, and hats had the preschool storytime group talking about winter gear. It’s been cold outside with no snow but today’s books had two girls and a chicken venturing out into cold snowy weather and dressing appropriately.
A young girl’s dilemma is finding her boots so she can go outside, in “Holly’s Red Boots” by Francesca Chessa. This is not an easy task. With so many red items, Holly’s searches the whole house. Can that red item beneath the table be the end of Holly’s search? Will the snow be melted by the time she finds the boots?
Mittens only work when there’s a pair. In “One Mitten” by Kristine O’Connell George a young girl prepares for winter snow fun, if only she can find her other mitten. The rhyming text brings you through the girl’s search for the mitten and her eventual snow play date with a friend.
Minerva Louise, a chicken, is a lovable character. “A Hat for Minerva Louise” by Janet Morgan Stoeke brings this adventuresome fowl out into the snow, but first she needs some winter clothes. Will that garden hose and plant pot substitute for a scarf and hat for Minerva Louise? Can a pair of gloves work as boots? Could that set of mittens finally be the hat for Minerva? It just might!
