Kristine O'Connell George, one of the principal voices in contemporary children's poetry, has received the Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award and the Promising Poet Award. She lives with her family in Agoura, California.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1–Using playful and engaging rhymes, a girl shows readers the many different things that she can do with one mitten. After using it to wave a simple "hello" to her brother, she shines a flashlight on it to put on an intricate "shadow show...with shadow shapes/of a mitten whale/and a slow, slow/mitten snail." When she finds the missing mate underneath the cat, the child demonstrates just how much fun two mittens can be, both indoors and out. Done in acrylic gouache, Smith's distinctive illustrations are filled with warm colors and eye-catching patterns. They capture the activities of a busy family on a winter day and provide a backdrop filled with objects that will be familiar to young listeners. Pair this tale with Jan Brett's The Mitten (Putnam, 1989), Ezra Jack Keats's The Snowy Day (Viking, 1962), and Janet Stoeke's A Hat for Minerva Louise (Dutton, 1994) for storytime or laptime winter fun.–Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI
