Overview

The Jacket by Andrew Clements

Phil is on a mission. His absentminded little brother forgot his lunch money. All kinds of thoughts are running through Phil's mind as he searches for Jimmy in the throngs of fourth and fifth graders crowding the school hallway:...if I'm late for math today, then I might not be allowed to take the test -- and then I could flunk math! I might even flunk sixth grade and get left back!
Then Phil spots Jimmy's one-of-a-kind jacket and rushes to the corner of the hallway. Except the person wearing it isn't his brother; it's some black kid Phil's never seen before -- wearing Jimmy's jacket! Phil makes an accusation, tempers flare, and both kids wind up in the principal's office.
How will Phil react when he finds out how Daniel came to be the owner of this unique jacket? Will Daniel be able to forgive Phil for an accusation that was based on racial prejudice? What will each boy learn about the other, and most important, about himself?

This Book Is A Great Book Because Explains The Problem very clearly & it gives specific details based On How The Boys Fight Over The Jacket also, it also have to do with segregation because in this book the boy think he is getting picked on because he is a different skinned color. I Think should read this book because its academical & good to read!

I thought the book was an easy read and very good. Phil was a 6th grader so we can all relate. He accused a younger African-American boy of stealing a jacket. This made Phil ask himself, 'Am I making a big deal out of this because of the jacket or because the boy is a different race?'. This book shows us that we need to get all facts of a situation before we accuse and it makes us ask ourselves if we are racially prejudice.

This book gives a positive message on a difficult topic that kids can understand. I used it in my fourth/fifth grade classroom and highly recommend it.
