From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K?One winter day, elderly Sarah notices a young boy at the bus stop without mittens, so she knits him a pair and leaves them on a tree where he'll find them. She continues to knit (anonymously) and leaves mittens for the children who need them. One day, a large basket of yarn is left on her doorstep, enabling her to continue her work. The story is well told, warm without being treacly. The scratchy illustrations are done in crisp, winter colors. A good bedtime tale for a cold winter night after playing all day in the snow.?Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY

The book features a heart warming story and stunning illustrations. I've seen so many people reading it (children AND adults!) and have been asked several times where it was purchased - amazon, of course!
It's a wonderful read, especially during the winter!
