Miss Mary is beloved by her students.  She makes learning fun and easy, and her brightly colored knitwear brings a smile to people's faces.



Walking to school in freshly fallen snow on the last day before the Christmas break, Miss Mary envisions all the fun they will have at recess. But recess isn't fun because the children don't have any mittens. But not to worry, Miss Mary has the answer, a Christmas surprise for her students!
