We just got back from storytime at the main Ann Arbor library with the ever-lovely Laura Pershin Raynor. She told the story of The Mitten with a giant felt mitten and animal puppets.
When came home, Claudia went into her room. She dug through her book baskets and came out clutching in her little hands her copy of the board book, The Mitten. She looked at me, and started nodding. "Ree," she said.
I think Laura Raynor may have magic powers.
