Virginia's coat is too small and hardly protects her from the frigid South Dakata winter. As Christmas approaches, all the children on the Sioux reservation look forward to receiving boxes full of clothing sent by congregations in the East. Virginia spots a beautiful gray fur coat but holds back tears as it is claimed by one of her classmates. Later, virginia can't believe what Mama brings home. Based on an event from the author's childhood, this picture book captures the true spirit of Christmas.

"Each day on the long walk to school Virginia's outgrown winter coat lets the frigid South Dakota prairie winds bite her bare wrists... Luckily, Christmas brings unexpected joy for those with generous spirits in this heartfelt story based on an event from the author's childhood."
