Jennie's Hat

Overview

Jennie's aunt is sending her a hat, and Jennie can hardly wait. "It'll be big, and flowery, and oh - so very beautiful," she tells herself happily. But when the box comes, the hat inside is very plain. What can Jennie do to make her hat truly special?

When the hat Jennie receives from her aunt is not as fancy as she had hoped, her bird friends decorate it for her.

Editorial Reviews

Horn Book
Certain to enchant little girls.
Publishers Weekly
In Ezra Jack Keats's mixed-media collage conveys the miraculous transformation of Jennie's Hat (1966), from a plain, broad-brimmed number to something stylish, with a bit of help from her feathered friends.
Children's Literature
As Jennie waits for the new hat from her aunt, she imagines how beautiful it will be. The plain straw hat with the simple ribbon that she unwraps is a source of disappointment. Wearing it to church among the ladies with their flower-bedecked hats only makes Jennie wish that her hat, too, looked more like a flower garden. On the way home the birds that Jennie has so generously fed reward her kindness by decorating her hat with flowers, leaves, a valentine or two, and even a nest with baby birds. Recalling a time not so long ago when ladies wore hats, the transformation of Jennie's hat still has relevancy today. The child who is determined to find a way to beautify the drab will be inspired by Jennie's tenacity. Keats' collage illustrations take on a deeper hue in this new imprint. The bright yellow is more golden and pinks have a more dusky tone. Rather that detract from the original, this new palette is reminiscent of a Victorian greeting card. If you have never owned this classic story or need to replace a well-worn copy, this new edition will fit the bill. 2003 (1966), Viking,
