Summary

A rollicking, rhyming, fun rendition of a favorite folksong about a many-times recycled coat -- by the award-winning, bestselling team of Jim Aylesworth and Barbara McClintock.

When my grandfather came to America
he made himself a handsome coat!
Then he wore it and he wore it and he wore it--
until it was all worn out!
So what did he do?

   He snipped and he clipped--
          and he stitched and he sewed. . .
                and out of the still-good cloth of his coat--
he made himself a smart jacket!


How many things can Grandfather make
out of that old frayed coat?
 
Jim Aylesworth's satisfying retelling and Barbara McClintock's heart-warming pictures celebrate the clever recycling of a beloved coat that lasts four generations -- until it becomes this story!
