The Little Green Jacket by Jodi Dee

Rating: 5 out of 5.

What I Loved:

We are huge donators and shoppers of second-hand stores. I LOVED that this book followed the life cycle of one coat as it is passed down, donated, and sold for reuse after reuse! What a lovely way to feature such a charitable act.

My Synopsis:

A green jacket is given as a Christmas gift to a child. The jacket is happy. It likes the feeling of supporting its child and keeping him warm. When the child outgrows the jacket, it is given to a church donation and finds a new owner to hold tight and keep warm.

The jacket’s story takes the reader on its journey from owner to owner. We see the different children it keeps warm and the love the children have for the jacket.

How I Felt:

I thought this was such a unique story. I don’t think I have ever read a children’s book focusing on the donation life cycle of something. It was really nice to see the variety of ways the jacket finds its way to the new owners, and I liked that it helps so many different types of people!
