When the father of a large family makes a beautiful winter coat, little does he know how much use it will get. Little Gedalia wears the coat all year, but when it gets too tight for him, it's given to his sister. Thus begins the journey of the coat, as it's passed down from child to child, falling apart bit by bit during their play until it's in tatters. Based on a beloved Yiddish poem, The Life of a Coat is a charming portrait of a loving family that will delight young readers and their parents.
