5 stars
This is another favourite of ours. I was initially drawn in by the illustrations after seeing it on the Bloomsbury social media. I reserved it from our Local library and my daughter fell in love with it. After renewing for the maximum times we bought our own copy. We have since bought several more Tom Percival books but this one has to be our favourite. It reminds me a little of Julia Donaldsons Smartest Giant in town where he uses his clothes to help out others in need. 
It's so heart warming that when Alfonzo is feeling cold and lonely all his new friends come to help him like he has helped them.

This is a lovely story about kindness that we have read many times. It follows the same premise as The Smartest Giant in Town. Alfonzo is very pleased with his smart new coat but as he walks along many animals are in need of help and Alfonzo uses his coat to help them out. When he ends up cold and shivery his new friends help him out. 

We loved the rhyming text and beautiful illustrations.

Goats Coat is a book my little ladies really enjoy. Written by Tom Percival, who we are big fans of, Goat's Coat is a lovely story about Alfonzo the goat who is so kind and resourceful using his coat to help other animals in need. The bouncy rhyming text makes a great read aloud and the illustrations are jolly and colourful. A great book to use when exploring friendship, kindness and just a delightful heart warming read.

About Tom Percival

Tom Percival grew up in a remote and beautiful part of South Shropshire. On reflection this seemed rather more remote than beautiful, owing to the fact that he lived in a small caravan without electricity, mains water or any sensible form of heating. He thinks that he's probably one of the few people in his peer group to have learned to read by gas lam...
