Cereal Box Book Report


T had to do a book report on a cereal box. He read the book "The Mitten" by Jan Brett. It is about a little boy named Nicki who begs his Baba to make him snow-white mittens. She doesn't want to because she is afraid he will lose one in the snow. Finally she agrees to make the mittens. She tells Nicki that when he gets back she will first check to see if he is okay, and then she will check to see if he still has his mittens. When Nicki goes outside he loses one of his mittens. A mole spots the mitten and climbs inside to stay warm. Soon, the mitten is filled with all kinds of animals; a rabbit, fox, badger, hedgehog, owl, bear, and a mouse. The bear sneezes and all the animals are forced out of the mitten. On his way home, Nicki sees his lost mitten floating in the sky. Baba watches him out the window and checks to see if he's safe, and then to see if he still has his mitten, which he does.
It is a very cute story. All my kids really enjoy it. We've read it several times. T had to come up with a name of a cereal that would go along with the book. He named his cereal Frosted Mitten Crunch. On one side we had to list the ingredients, which were the characters and the setting of the story. On the other side we wrote a short summary of the book. For the back we made a maze to help Nicki find his lost mitten. It turned out very cute. He did a great job on it. When he presents it to the class, he has to do a commercial for it. I hope it goes well!
