Joseph Had a Little Overcoat (1999)

Written by Simms Taback

Joseph had a little overcoat, but it was full of holes—just like this book! When Joseph's coat got too old and shabby, he made it into a jacket. But what did he make it into after that? And after that?

As children turn the pages of this book, they can use the die-cut holes to guess what Joseph will be making next from his amazing overcoat, while they laugh at the bold, cheerful artwork and learn that you can always make something, even out of nothing. This book is recommended for children ages 3 and up. (Copyright © Viking Books for Young Readers/Penguin.
