The Rag Coat

Minna dreams of going to school, but the Appalachian winters are too cold to go without a coat — and since her father has recently died, her family is struggling too much to afford one. When the local quilting group, which meets in Minna's house, hears about her predicament, they come up with a clever solution: each of them will provide some scrap fabric, and they'll work together to make her a coat. And when classmates tease Minna for wearing rags, she reminds them that her coat is made of stories: one story from each of their homes, put together to make something beautiful.

With paintings that capture all the beauty of Appalachia in authentic detail, this tender story about a resourceful mountain girl's special coat will touch readers with its affirming message of love and friendship.
