Bella loves the sights and sounds of fall --- the crinkle-crackle of fallen leaves, the crunch of crisp, red apples, the honking and flapping of migrating geese. She wants the season to last forever. She also wants her fall coat --- the one her Grams made especially for her --- to last forever. But the coat is worn-out and too small...With a snip and a whir, Grams makes sure Bella will be warm when the first snowflakes fall. And Bella finds a perfect use for her old favorite coat --- on the first snowman of the season.
