Joseph had a little Overcoat

Bibliographic Information: Taback, Simms. Joseph Had a Little Overcoat. New York: Viking, 1999. Print..

Brief Annotation: This book is about a man name Joseph, who wanted to keep his overcoat as long as possible, but it got old and worn, so he made different things with the overcoat cloth.

Grade Level: K-2

Readers who will like this: Children who are visual or likes to do art.

Rating/Response: 4 I thought this book was a great read because it can show what a person can make or do with an overcoat.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: What do you think Joseph will do with the overcoat?

Reading Strategy: Making Connection

Rationale for Strategy: This book would be great at making connections because students can look at a big picture and continue to make smaller crafts out of it.
