The Coal Thief by Alane Adams – Holiday Gift Guide Children's Book Review #BBHGG15

The Coal Thief by Alane Adams is a children’s picture book set in 1920s Pennsylvania. It is winter, and Georgie’s family is obviously struggling. Georgie is cold, they have no coal in the stove and his toes are poking through his boots. When his friend Harley stops by to take him on an adventure, Georgie goes along.

Harley’s ‘adventure’ turns out to be Georgie stealing coal from a passing train. When the train starts up again and Georgie is stuck in the coal car, he is scared of what will happen. His Papa comes along just in time and teaches Georgie a powerful lesson about caring for others ahead of yourself.
