Norene Paulson | Nila’s Perfect Coat
@ Beaverdale Books
Nila and her mom love shopping at the thrift store. But when Nila finds the most perfect, shiny, puffy coat, Mom says no: Nila’s winter coat still fits her just fine. With a lot of determination and some birthday money from Dad, Nila sets out to prove the coat really is perfect—but along the way, learns maybe it’s perfect for someone else. Someone who needs both a coat and a friend.
Nila’s Perfect Coat features a resource guide that encourages kids to share the warmth of a winter coat, just like Nila. An engaging and accessible story about having enough and helping others in need.
