Sue-Ellen Pashley: The Jacket, illustrated by Thea Baker
A lovely picture book for every child who has outgrown a favourite toy or piece of clothing.
The jacket was no ordinary jacket. It was soft, like dandelion fluff. It was warm, like the afternoon sun. It was comforting, like a hug from your favourite teddy.
In The Jacket, a child's favourite piece of clothing passes on to her little sister and then is repurposed for a new life. This is a heartwarming story about growing up and learning to let go of the things you become attached to in childhood.
