Old Sarah lives alone and spends her spare time watching the children outside playing in the snow — except for one boy. He doesn't have mittens.
One day she discovers a basket on her porch filled with yarn. She accepts this mysterious gift just as the children accept the mittens without knowing who knit them.
The circle of kindness and generosity goes around. The Mitten Tree, a delightful children's book by Candace Christiansen and illustrated by Elaine Greenstein, celebrates giving from the heart with no need for recognition or applause (Fulcrum Publishing).
