More than anything, Minna wants to go to school. But first she needs a winter coat. The Quilting Mothers, who gather at Minna's house every day to sew and tell stories, offer to make her a coat from scraps of quilting material, and Minna carefully chooses the pieces that have the best stories behind them.
Finally the new coat is ready. Minna proudly wears it to school, but she is quite unprepared for the reaction of her new classmates.
This evocative story of a resourceful mountain girl will charm readers with its message of love and friendship. Lauren Mills's sensitive watercolors capture all the beauty and atmosphere of Appalachia.
