    3.5 Lovely illustrations and a pleasant story that is perhaps a bit too predictable and full of heart for its own good about a poor girl whose family cannot afford to buy her a coat thus, she cannot go to school in the winter and the kind women who eventually make her a quilted coat of scraps She can go to school but, oh, do the children tease her about that coat I should probably note that if I was a fan of Appalachian stuff I would likely have bumped this up a star but I ve never been too keen [...]

    They all wore black, black like the coal mines that killed my papa He didn t even like black He liked all the bright colors of the day.This is a lovely book I prefer children s books with natural illustrations, so this is near perfect for me Lauren Mills provides an engaging narrative along with her softly lit drawings to make this a worthwhile read for parents and tykes In a world of children as bullies, this is also a good lesson to show kids that they don t need to conform to fit in, that the [...]

    When I was 7 or 8, I m sure this would have been one of my favorite books, and I think the kids of today will like it, too There are ideas here that will get their attention a coat can be made of rags, Minna didn t go to school because she didn t have a coat, and her father died because he worked in a mine Those are enough big ideas for one short picture book.The art fits the story beautifully.

    This book was great because it can be used to really teach children to not pick on others and to be thankful for what they have I would use this book as a good book to teach a lesson on how to treat others.

    Implausible and preachy The rest of Minna s outfit and home seemed comfortable enough she even wore shoes inside Laura Ingalls didn t shoes were for Sunday only Nice idea, though.

    After Minna s father dies from working in the coal mine, there is no money to buy her a coat so she can go to school Her mother s sewing group all work together to create a colorful coat for her out of rags and scraps and when Minna proudly wears it to school, she is mocked But Minna has the last word in the end, showing the other children pieces of their past Illustrated by the author.This is a touching story set in Appalachia with beautiful watercolor illustrations Empty spaces on the pages ar [...]

    This book has beautiful illustrations and a touching message Even as an adult, I m constantly reminding myself that people only need people, nothing else This is a hard thing to remember as life with people can be messy and at times unpleasant But I truly believe that getting involved in the lives of others is the best way we can spend our time on earth.

    Genre historical fictionReading Level upper elementaryThe Rag Coat was a very realistic story Some students may even relate to the young girl in the book Her father had always wrapped her up in a cozy quilt because she didn t have a coat but one day her father died Her mother continued to make her a coat which was made from the quilt I t was a sad but good read.

    I feel like I m cheating, counting this as one of my books I read it in a night to the boys I believe I got the recommendation from my precious Wholesome books for young readers book Illustrations are beautiful Good lesson on kids being mean and there is an option to getting revenge on them Julian s weakness.

    While this story is set in a foreign time and place, the characters are easily relatable It s not hard to put oneself in Minna s shoes as she goes to school and struggles to make friends, and anticipates sharing something special with others only to be sorely misunderstood Her gentle spirit as she chooses forgiveness rather than bitterness is a quiet lesson to readers without being preachy, the author shows us the value of forgiveness in the face of pain Minna experiences so much loss, but she k [...]

    This was an amazing read definitely a re read It tells the story of a girl whose father dies and she doesn t go to school for a while When she does she is an outcast I loved how I could connect with her It showed the importance of family and the importance of accepting each other I actually read this with my sister and I cried It touches the heart because everyone can connect with losing family in one way or another If not, they can at least sympathize with her The rag coat was a beautiful metap [...]

    This is an older picture book but we loved it as much as some of the newer titles we have brought home It tells a sweet story of a young girl in an Appalachian setting who can t go to school because she hasn t got a coat to keep her warm in the winters Instead she stays at home to help her Ma and Pa, especially Ma who needs help with the cloth scraps to make into quilt pieces My 6 y.o boy stayed engaged through the whole story, and was interested in the pictures showing boys and girls from an ol [...]

    This book is about a little girl who cannot go to school, because she doesn t have a coat to wear in the cold weather When some ladies make her a coat out of old scraps, she is made fun of at school Little did the other children know, the scraps were full of their memories, and they realize how special her rag coat is I thought this book was very inspirational, teaching students not to judge so quickly and to see the beauty in things that they may have not considered beautiful.

    I loved this book It s so precious Spoiler When I read the dad ended up dying I was so sad I half expected it, but also kind of not and hoped he would have gotten better It s a lovely story and the illustrations were wonderful I enjoyed it I also liked how one of the children that made fun of Minna ended up telling the teacher the truth herself instead of Minna telling the teacher what really happened.

    This has to be one of my favorite books from my childhood, and I was elated that I happened upon it in my school s library This book, though it takes place in a much earlier time, can resonate with children of today It is a story of love and friendship that truly touches the heart The beautiful illustrations add to the heart warming tale Add this to the list of books that I will purchase for my future classroom library

    Absolutely beautiful The story, the illustration, all of it is just beautiful Being a southern girl from just below the North Georgia Smokey Mountains a story like this resignates with my ancestral history and gives me another reason to love it Definitely on my to buy wishlist This will be a great addition to the history section to study earlier Americans, yet it could also span cultures with similarity.

    An excellent book that shows a girl who must deal with the death of her father Since he dies and was the bread winner for the family, she does not have a coat to wear to school Her mother s friends team up to sew her a coat When she wears the coat she is teased because of the patchwork, but the patches all reveal something about her classmates A good book to discourage bullying by showing that we all have something in common or can learn fronm one another.

    The girl in this book comes from a family that can t even buy here a coat The coat she gets, so she can go to school is made by all the neighborhood women out of scraps The children at her school judge her coat harshly but then learn that the coat was made with love and includes a story about them Very sweet and touching and a lovely book about being careful to about judging others.
