Synopsis

Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton

And though we had no money I was rich as I could be, in my coat of many colours that mama made for me. Country music legend Dolly Parton's rural upbringing in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee provides the backdrop for this special picture book. Using lyrics from her classic song Coat of Many Colours, the book tells the story of a young girl in need of a warm winter coat. When her mother sews her a coat made of rags, the girl is mocked by classmates for being poor. But Parton's trademark positivity carries through to the end as the girl realises that her coat was made with love in every stitch. Beautiful illustrations pair with Parton's poetic lyrics in this heartfelt picture book sure to speak to all young readers.
