Yesterday we read Jan Brett's The Mitten. The story has gorgeous illustrations and a sequential text that is fun to retell.
We found this coloring sheet on Jan Brett's website. These are all the animals that try to squeeze into the mitten. You could color these with crayons or markers, but we opted for water color paints this time.
After the animals were painted and cut out, we retold the story together. Each animal made their way into the mitten.
