a new coat for ana tells of the story of a young girl named ana. after the war ended, her mother promised her a new coat b/c the blue coat she had was too small. they went through so much to get her a new coat. they traded many valuable items. this story inspires children to be thankful for what they have.

I think the story was beautiful. I would never have guessed it was in WWII. I really wish I had another book like that. I hope other people think it is beautiful, too. I felt happy to read that book.
