The Coat

Ah, the coat. So warm, so beautiful, so red. It’s all Elise has really wanted, and she’s been waiting forever. When will the coat be hers?


Then, a chance encounter changes everything, revealing that the pleasure that comes from belongings (even the perfect ones!) is no match for the joy of helping others.


At turns lighthearted and poignant, The Coat offers a glimpse at the hardships confronting those who are experiencing homelessness, inspiring us to treat them with compassion and respect. A downloadable discussion guide is available at flyawaybooks.com/resources.

Reviews

"This story is uplifting and will be a strong resource for teachers to talk about the importance of kindness. VERDICT A must for all libraries. It is not only a beautifully told story, but its message is full of heart. Children will love engaging in 'what would I do?' scenarios.” 

School Library Journal (starred review)


“Primary red, blue, and yellow play against muted backdrops in the sketchlike illustrations of this heartfelt story that encourages compassion and reflection on what’s truly important.” 

Foreword Reviews


“The brilliance of The Coat lies in its believable perspective on how the practice of kindness emerges in the life of a child. . . . Louis Thomas' illustrations add immeasurably to the story, revealing vivid emotions.”
