A Child's review

I think the best review comes from a child's viewpoint. I bought this book for my 2 1/2 year old son. Since the first day he had the book we have to read it every night and 2 to 3 other times during the day. If you ask him to pick a book to read, Joseph Had a Little Overcoat is one that is always chosen. I do not think there can be a better recommendation on a child's book than a child wanting the book read over and over and over again. And that the child knows the book well enough to choose it himself to "read" and for it to be read to him. Also, from my (the parent's) viewpoint the history of the story and the tune in the back to sing just gives so much more to the story itself. It gives history and a way to take the story with us even if the book is not available.

Wonderful story...wonderful pictures

This is a charming, simple book with vibrant, busy pictures that just delights my five year old. The format of the story repeats itself over and over so that your little one can easily "help" you read. The pictures are terrific and full of detail. My son enjoys spending time looking for new and hidden things on each page. Overall, a nice thoughtful book. I recommend it highly.

great for teachers

I read this book to 130 second graders in the cafeteria and they loved it!. The illustrations were beautiful. It lends itself to a great writing prompt with a project attached! Don't forget those fifth graders, too! Nancy Usich Avon, Ct

Beautiful, funny, and wise!

This is one of my all-time favorite children's books - it is great to have it in print in a new and even better edition. The philosophy underlying the story - that with spirit one can always triumph over circumstances - is light-heartedly embodied in Taback's marvelous illustrations. The text is inspired by a Yiddish song, which the new edition gives on a back page. This is a book I'm going to give away copies of for years to come!
