What happens when you outgrow a cherished piece of clothing? An affectionate tale about letting go and watching the things you love take on a new life.

The jacket was no ordinary jacket. It was soft, like dandelion fluff. It was comforting, like a hug from your favorite teddy bear. And it had four dazzling buttons down the front.

Amelia wears her favorite jacket everywhere. She wears it to preschool. And to Aunty Kath’s house. And to the store. Even to bed! But one day, she can’t fit into it anymore.

A reassuring text combines with enchanting collage illustrations to tell a story that is as warm and cozy as a well-loved coat.
