She encounters and overcomes relatable challenges, encouraging children reading to do the same. It includes a recipe for chocolate chip cookies and an audio cookalong with Mitsy.
In this heartwarming and playful story, we meet Mitsy, a young oven mitt who has spent her whole life in the mitten factory. Mitsy is a lot of things, and one of them is nervous. When she is accepted into Miss Copperpot's Acedemy for Useful Utensils, the magical boarding school where kitchen utensils go to learn how to assist in cooking, she is nervous to leave her home and meet other heat-proof utensils. But her first days at school bring together a diverse cast of characters, inspiring kitchen facts, and a story to empower kids so that when they, too, feel nervous, they remember that they can do anything.
