The Mitten by Jan Brett

Today I had a 1st grade class who is studying different Jan Brett books. They wanted to do one of the online interactive projects but alas, they are not for Firefox users! Actually, I also tried Safari and that didn’t work either. Macs no longer support Internet Explorer so it’s not like we even have that option. Boo hoo!

We did listen to Hedgie’s New Story, though.




  1. Check there again sometime or use FIREFOX. My mac lab uses firefox which we love. My first graders visited this site and still do. They enjoyed the Online computer games at her site. They also love to print from her site. Once a month during the first week of each month, students are allowed to print their choice.

  2. Linda, you probably remember that I have a 16 year old daughter. She has been a fan of Jan Brett’s since she was in elementary school, and we have been to see her at book signings in KS and OK. What I learned about her is that she is a very giving person who wants kids to have access to her “stuff”.
    I have emailed her with questions, and she always quickly responds. Email her and let her know what is happening. If she can’t help you, I think she would probably try to get some information for you.
    We haven’t used IE in years, so I don’t know what the problem could be, but Jan Brett or her web people probably do.

  3. Hi Sheryl,
    I agree, Jan Brett is amazing! I love her “stuff!”
    I believe she has a disclaimer on her site that it’s best viewed in IE, but I will certainly email her and give it a try.
    Thanks for reminding me to do that!
