Children's Book Author Jan Brett

Updated on October 4, 2012

Jan Brett's Childrens Books

We were first turned on to Jan Brett by my sister-in-law. Since then, we have been reading Jan Brett stories to our kids. Titles like The Mitten, The Hat, and Gingerbread Baby are heart warming stories all children can relate to.

Jan has a lot of wonderful things on her website, such as how to draw videos and coloring pages for her different characters. I hope you enjoy this tribute to Jan Brett.

      Jan Brett not only is a beautiful illustrator, she also has a wonderful site with games, activities and worksheets for teaching young children. I especially like the mitten activity where children can cut out and color the animals from the mitten.

      First graders can copy the names of the animals from the board or the book onto the back of the animals in order to help them with beginning reading and writing skills.
