by | Read by Simms Taback

Children Ages 4-6 • 15 min. • Book & Cassette • © 1999

Author Simms Taback reads the text of his popular picture book, one that weaves the tale about a piece of fabric that follows a man, first as his overcoat, then his coat, his vest, his scarf, and eventually as it wears away, Joseph has nothing left of his overcoat but the story to tell. With amusing sound effects, musical accompaniment, and Taback's playful reading, this is a listening delight. The program is repeated on both sides of the cassette, once with page-turning cues. At the end of the story, Taback sings the Yiddish folk song that is the basis for the story. Together with the print version, JOSEPH HAD A LITTLE OVERCOAT is a worthy addition to any children's library, public or private. S.E.S. 2002 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
