The mitten tree is a heartwarming story about an older women who lives alone.  She enjoys watching the children play outside her home.
As she watches them play she notices that one child does not have mittens. So she knits some mittens to match his coat.
She enjoys making mittens and when she sees the smile on that child's face she makes more mittens.

Each time hanging them on nearby pine tree for the children to find.
