When my grandfather came to America, he made himself a handsome coat!
Then he wore it and he wore it and he wore it...
...until it was all worn out! So what did he do?
He snipped and he clipped... and he stitched and he sewed...
and out of the still - good cloth of his coat -
he made himself a smart jacket!
How many wonderful things can Grandfather make out of that old, frayed coat?
Jim Aylesworth's satisfying retelling and Barbara McClintock's heartwarming pictures celebrate the clever recycling of a beloved coat that lasts through four generations - until it becomes this story!
