The Christmas Coat by Virginia Driving Hawk is a heart-felt Christmas story about the spirit of giving. Virginia’s family lives on a reservation and her father is the Episcopal priest of the village. Every year the village receives boxes of clothing, shoes, and other essential items sent by church congregations in New England. This year, Virginia would really love a coat. She must wait for all of the other children to receive an item before her family, because her father is the priest. When the boxes arrive, the best coat goes to another girl named Evelyn. Virginia feels sad, but understands that others need it more than she does. On Christmas Eve, Virginia and her brother receive their gifts. As it turns out Virginia gets her wish; a smooth, red coat with a fur-trimmed hood.
