We ended up exploring the characters and then wrote about our favourite one. You can click on the writing page below to get a copy.
And just in case you don't know, Jan Brett's website has so many awesome activities to go along with The Mitten and all her other stories as well. I printed off the character cards from the story. Here's just a few to show you how cute they are. My kids LOVE them! We voted for our favourite character and the Fox won.

Where I live, we definitely need our mittens this week. It is sooooo cold. Stay warm wherever you are.
