"In a story based off a Ukrainian tradition, Jan Brett brings Nicki and many woodland creatures to life through her distinctive illustrations and poetic prose. Each page is bordered with detailed drawings that stay faithful to the Ukrainian culture all while telling a story that is warm and humorous about a child looking for a white mitten on a snowy day. This is an excellent book that serves as a visual and seasonal example for young readers to gain insight on another culture."
