It was an early winter evening, an elderly man and his dog were hurrying home through the forest to avoid the oncoming storm. As he stopped to tie his bootlace he left behind one of his mittens.
It wasn't long before the mitten was found and soon became the scene for a wonderful little story about friendship and overcoming our differences.
Following this story consider these questions:
During the story did you think that some of the animals might be eaten by the others?
the most unlikely group of animals were able to live together and be friends, why?
At the end of the story all of the animals scatter into the woods- can you write your own story about what happened next?
