Surrounded by his cat and furry toy animals, Noah wonders aloud, "e;Why do you get to have fur coats, but I don't?"e; 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.
