Surrounded by his cat and furry toy animals, Noah wonders aloud, "Why do you get to have fur coats, but I don't?" In his dream that night, Noah learns how vital each animal's fur coat is to its survival and happiness. Each fur-bearing animal is shown in its appropriate habitat.

Through light-hearted, engaging, and informative interactions, Friends in Fur Coats tackles the difficult topic of why using animal fur is inherently inhumane. Children learn in vivid detail what makes each animal’s fur unique, as well as other facts special to each animal.



The vibrant illustrations and language illuminate and stress the beauty and vitality of real fur-bearing animals while making a connection to children’s beloved plush toys as stand-ins for animals that need their protection and care.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1–3—During a dream, young Noah visits his stuffed animals in their different habitats and learns why their fur coats are important for their survival. Noah says goodnight to all of his beloved stuffed animals before going to bed. As he falls asleep, he is surrounded by trees and deep in a forest. He talks to Bella, his stuffed animal bear, who has transformed into a real bear. She tells him all about her fur and its purpose. Throughout, Noah travels to various habitats and is greeted by his stuffed animals. In the end, he realizes why fur is so important to his animal friends and why he does not need a fur coat. Overall, the book contains numerous facts that are hidden in the dialogue within a fantasy scenario. Youngsters reading the book independently may find the back-and-forth confusing, since it never explicitly says who is talking. The colorful watercolor illustrations add to the animals' explanations. At the end of the book, there is a page for adults, with statistics about animals being killed for their fur. This information is not appropriate for younger readers and should be considered when adding this to a library. VERDICT An additional selection for avid animal fans.—Jennifer Pope, La Grange Independent School District, TX
