Hello, my little friends!
Oma has been spending some time with her sewing basket; mending a few projects that have needed done, especially with winter on its way.
Do you have projects you enjoy working on?
One of Oma’s projects has inspired the story I have chosen for us to read together!
The Coat of Many Colors
Written by Dolly Parton
Illustrated by Judith Sutton
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 Colors,” 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 realizes that her coat was made with love “in every stitch.”
Come along with me inside of Oma’s Reading Room; where you will discover how Dolly brings one of her best loved songs to life!
Remember Oma’s sending you her
hugs and her blessings!
I hope you’ll catch them and hold them
