On Mother's Sunday at church, Clara B.'s grandma has the most beautiful hat of all the ladies. When people compliment her on it, she says, "Honey, I'm not wearing this hat. This hat is wearing me!" Clara B. likes to sit behind the hat in church and pretend it is wearing her. One day Clara B. decides that pretending isn't enough, and she waits for her chance at the hat. But when the right moment comes along and she finally gets her hands on it, things don't go exactly as she'd planned . . . Exuberant illustrations by Frank Morrison perfectly capture a colorful African American Baptist tradition -- and the special relationship between a girl, her grandma, and a big, bold, beautiful hat.
