As the seasons go by, this splendid coat is passed down from child to child, keeping them warm and snug during all the fun — from winter snowball fights to springtime fishing! But when it’s finally given to Yechiel Peretz, the most mischievous little boy among them, can the coat endure his rowdy ways?
Based on the beloved Yiddish poem by Kadya Molodowsky, The Life of a Coat is a lighthearted yet heartfelt tale of a family that ultimately shares much more than a coat. Together, they experience the full breadth of life — from its hardships to its joys.
Perfect for readers aged 4–8 and their parents.
