My Grandfather’s Coat by Jim Aylesworth (illustrated by Barbara McClintock) was published October 21, 2014 to starred reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and Publishers Weekly and was named one of PW's Best Children's Books of the Year!
Based on the Yiddish folk song, “I Had A Little Overcoat,” My Grandfather’s Coat tells the story of an immigrant man’s beloved coat as it is passed down through multiple generations. Kirkus called the picture book “sweet and tender and joyful,” while Publishers Weekly said, “Warmth emanates from this thoughtful book, which deserves to become a multi-generational family favorite.”
