Product Details


A special jacket flourishes in a family over time…Snug and enchanting.

Lines by Pashley, making her picture book debut, are evocative and rhythmic (“It was soft, like dandelion fluff./ It was warm, like the afternoon sun”), with phrases that repeat like the chorus of a song. The story aptly draws its warmth from domestic comforts as it champions reusing precious things instead of throwing them away.
—Publishers Weekly

Baker’s soft, subtle collage-style illustrations pair perfectly with Pashley’s sweet story about growing up, letting go, and allowing prized possessions to take on new life…Children and their favorite possessions are hard to part, and for good reasons! This heartfelt story is for every collection; readers will relate to the theme of growing up but not away.
—School Library Journal
