This book is about a little girl and
special coat. She didn't have a coat to wear in the fall and her
family did not have much money. So instead of purchasing a coat,
the girl's mother made her a coat out of some old rags.
When she wore her new coat to school the children
picked on her. The
little girl didn't understand what was wrong with her coat because it
meant so much to her. She knew how much time and love that her
mama had put into every stitch. Although the children picked on
her, she continued to wear her coat of many colors proudly and knew
that it was worth much more than anything money could buy.
I really enjoyed reading this book because it tells
a wonderful story. Some families do not have as much money as
others but that doesn't mean they can't be as happy. The girl was
so proud of her "new" coat and she didn't care what anyone else thought
The story is unique in the fact that it is not only
written by Dolly Parton, but it is also written about her.
She was the little girl who's mother made her a coat out of the
old rags. After she became a country music singer, she recorded a
called "Coat of Many Colors" that she dedicated to "all the good Mamas
out there." I thought that the book was excellent and I
would recommend it to anyone who likes to read.
