The Life of a Coat by Kadya Molodowsky

The Life of a Coat by Kadya Molodowsky

Illustrator: Batia Kolton
Translator: Ilana Kur­shan

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 with pride all year, but when it gets too tight for him―he’s a growing boy, after all―it’s given to his sister, Yeshaya. Thus begins the journey of the coat as it’s passed down from child to child, a charming portrait of a loving family. Drawn in a clean-line style with a muted color palette, The Life of a Coat is based on the beloved Yiddish poem by the Polish poet Kadya Molodowsky and will delight young readers and their parents. Full-color illustraions throughout
