KIRKUS REVIEW

Printed on light card stock, two bright orange mittens with faint but expressive facial features draw, garden and even dream together in this playful mini-tale. Drawing the mittens as if she were watching them on her own hands, Cohen adds simple, stage-like surroundings, a line or two of dialogue per page and a bit of drama as one mitten goes missing and the other goes in search: “ ‘Did you see a little lost mitten?’ ‘No,’ say the pants. ‘We can’t get lost. We are always together.’ ” But the stray soon turns up, offering a joke so silly that the distress is quickly forgotten. A direct invitation to make up more stories lurks beneath a closing double flap; rare is the young child who will be able to resist doing just that. (Picture book. 3-5)
