Synopsis

Jan Brett fans can now get three of her bestselling books in one box! This "little library" contains the board book editions of three Brett wintertime tales: The Mitten, The Hat, and Gingerbread Baby. Young readers will love watching woodland animals snuggle together in The Mitten, and in The Hat, they'll laugh at seeing Hedgie -- and his animals friends -- wearing clothes! And of course, no one can forget Brett's mischievous Gingerbread Baby, who winds up safe and snug in his own gingerbread house. Featuring the author's intricate, Scandinavian-influenced artwork and beloved characters, these classics are easy to tote and will make a heartwarming addition to any bookshelf.
