The Purple Coat by Amy Hest

Gabrielle wanted a different type of coat but she had always gotten the same type all her life. Her mother and grandfather tried to dissuade her but no, not blue, she wanted a purple coat. Finally a compromise was made and a reversable coat was made.

Cute book, I was reading it thinking I had read the story sometime as a child but then I looked at the front cover and remembered no, I heard it read on Reading Rainbow! I don't like their rocky music now in their introduction but the impact that all the books that show had on sharing with me is amazing to think about.
