MITSY the Oven Mitt Goes to School – Book Showcase

MITSY the Oven Mitt Goes to School – Book Showcase

I received a copy of “MITSY the Oven Mitt Goes to School” ($17.99 value) in exchange for this post. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.

Nervous?  Get the jitters?  Meet Mitsy, the oven mitt who feels nervous around ovens and is now accepted to the best culinary school for utensils and she’s VERY nervous.  She’s a champion thumb wrestler, loves to play hot potato, learn secret handshakes and do the wave, BUT she gets…..nervous…especially around ovens.

Mitsy is then faced with OVENS 101 and is front and center with a ROOM FULL OF OVENS!  What will Misty do?  How will she tame her nervousness?

Enjoy this hardcovered comical juvenile fiction picture book for ages 4 and up that meets feelings head-on and is a GREAT tool to introduce to kiddos starting school for the first time or starting a new school year and touches base on meeting new friends, trying new things and all in all BEING BRAVE!

MITSY the Oven Mitt Goes to School can be purchased at your local book store or on Amazon.  Book also includes a WONDERFUL Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that can be made with a grown up.
