'The Mitten', written by Alvin Tresselt, illustrated by Yaroslava, published in 1964, by the Weekly Reader Children's Book Club. I have always admired this book with its elegant line and stunning combinations of colour. The mitten is an ancient Ukrainian Folktale, retold in various forms over the decades in the form of old hats, vests, socks and gloves being repurposed by animals for winter warmth and shelter.
