Summary: 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 over the years out of that old frayed coat?
Target Audience: Ages 4-8.
Notes: Adaptation of the Yiddish folk song "I had a little overcoat" (Hob Ikh Mir a Mantl).
