Do I Have to Wear a Coat?

Do I Have to Wear a Coat?

by Rachel Isadora

Caldecott Honor winner Rachel Isadora celebrates each of the four seasons with a diverse cast of endearing kids
All four seasons are full of wonderful things that make them fun and special, and the children in this delightful book share some of the highlights (and some pretty nifty clothes)! Spring brings berries, baby animals, cool showers–and raincoats. Summer brings warm breezes, the best beach weather–and no more coats! In the fall, we play in the leaves and pumpkin patches–and wrap up in cozy sweaters. And winter brings ice skating and all kinds of snowy outdoor fun–but we need to bundle up in our heaviest coats! In a style reminiscent of her popular My Dog Laughs and I Hear a Pickle, Rachel Isadora’s charming vignettes are packed with details that young children will want to pour over.
