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.


One Warm Coat Book Drive
Wednesday, February 8 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

As part of her event, Norene will host a coat drive with One Warm Coat, plus she will generously sponsor a drawing for two $25 gift cards from Beaverdale Books.  Bring a gently used coat to this fun storytime in celebration of Nila’s Perfect Coat. Ryan Frederiksen, a board member with One Warm Coat, will give a brief overview of the nonprofit and how you can help kids stay warm this winter.    Learn more at: www/
