    The Rag Coat by Lauren Mills

    This book is about a little girl named Minna who comes from a poor family. She desperately wants to go to school, but it is not a possibility because she is needed at home to help her mother. Later her father promised she would go to school, but first she needed a coat for the bitter winters they had otherwise she would have to dropout half way into the school year. But her Papa dies from working in harsh conditions in the coal mines, so school seems to be a distant fate that may never come. Until one day the quilting mothers find out Minna can't go to school because she doesn't have a jacket, so they decide to intervene and help make a coat from their scraps of quilts they made previously. Minna is ecstatic about her new coat and can hardly stand the wait. Finally the new coat is ready. Minna wears it proudly to school, but she is quite unprepared for the reaction of her new classmates. What her schoolmates do not realize is that Minna is wearing a piece of something that once was or still is special to each and every person in her class. In the end Minna is may just teach her classmates a valuable lesson.

    This book is beautiful.

    I was introduced to this book while in a reading education course at East Stroudsburg University. I have bought it as a gift many times. A beautiful story of a young girl with few material things and the cruelty of those who teased her, but Love prevails - a great story for both sexes that teaches values in a way almost any child (or adult!) can relate to. The illustrations are fantastic. Love it.
