Kindergarten-Grade 3 Each fall Gabrielle rides on the train and the subway with her mama to Grampa's tailor shop in New York City to be measured for a new navy blue coat. This year, however, she yearns for something different. Her request for a purple coat, and Grampa's creative solution, provide a delightful story of intergenerational love and understanding. Schwartz' familiar brightly colored illustrations provide warmth and humor as they portray every detail of the text. The story is realistic, the characters believable, and the whole will elicit an affectionate response from children. Susan Scheps, Bertram Woods Branch Library, Shaker Heights, Ohio
