One by one, woodland animals find the mitten and crawl in; first a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse, and what happens next makes a wonderfully funny climax.

Twelve Days Of Christmas, The
Grade Levels: Pre-K, Primary, Intermediate

Wild Christmas Reindeer, The
