Coat of Many Colors

Country music legend Dolly Parton's rural upbringing in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee provides the backdrop for this special picture book. Using lyrics from her classic song "Coat of Many Colors," the book tells the story of a young girl in need of a warm winter coat. When her mother sews her a coat made of rags, the girl is mocked by classmates for being poor. But Parton's trademark positivity carries through to the end as the girl realizes that her coat was made with love "in every stitch."

Originally released in 1994, this new edition features all-new illustrations by Brooke Boynton-Hughes that pair beautifully with Parton's heartfelt, poetic lyrics. Parton doesn't ignore the hurt and confusion caused by her classmates unkind words, but conveys a powerful message about resiliency and love: "I know we had no money/ But I was rich as I could be/ In my coat of many colors/ My momma made for me."
