“So Joseph made a book about it. Which shows... you can always make something out of nothing.” I thought this ending of the story will really make children believe in themselves.

I loved how everything Joseph had, he would make something new out of it as it would be old and worn. He was very creative.

I loved this book. It shows children how you can create things from other items and where Joseph‘s different clothing items took him different places.

Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Simms Taback was written in 1999 and won the Caldecott Medal in 2000. This book is so vibrant and eye catching. I think it almost teaches us a lesson about sustainability because he always found use for his overcoat and didn‘t just throw it away and keep buying new things. This is good for kids to start learning about so they are aware of it. The illustrations are just wonderful as well.

This TL, a Caldecott Honor book, is all about Joseph‘s overcoat that he kept for a long time. After so long, it began to fall apart. He would later make it into a scarf, then a necktie, a handkerchief, & more items. This would be great in any elementary school classroom library. This book would best be RA, PR, and S.

Summerm This book would best be used with the UDL principles: 3.2 (highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships) & 3.3 (Guide information processing and visualization). Also, the EL strategies: 11 (place language in meaningful context) & 6 (continually monitor students‘ comprehension). 2mo
Summerm 3.3 (by guiding information and having the class visualize what his coat looks like will help them become enveloped in the story.

6 (Since this is aimed for young readers, it is helpful to students to make sure they are all cooperating which helps with comprehension)

DrSpalding From several of your posts, you understand that good books can be used in a variety of ways to meet the needs of all students. Being that this is traditional literature, storytelling is a natural choice however reading aloud, etc works too. 1mo

• This book is about a man named Joseph who always took his old worn garments and turned them into something new!

• UDL: 7.2
• EL: Short sentences and lots of pictures about the sentence

Kayladvazquez I love the resource you gave it provides questions that can be used when doing an interactive read aloud which is great. I like the idea of getting the children involved and acting out the book. I feel this book has a lot of hands-on and visual activities that would be very helpful for ELL's. 3mo

The repetitive words in this book makes it really fun for children to read. The adventures that Joseph went on are fun and exciting for children to read.

I really like how the new piece of clothing he creates is cut out on the next picture and when you flip it it shows the new piece. I think children will really enjoy this.

Joseph Had a Little Overcoat is a Caldecott award winning book by Simms Taback. Joseph had a little overcoat that was full of holes. He made it into a jacket and many other things after that.

I enjoy the vibrant and bold colors on top of the black background. The use of cutouts is always fun and exciting for children to explore as well.

This story shares the multiple and funny transitions of Joseph‘s overcoat. The book has holes in the pages to she the different uses he has for this overcoat and creates a humorous perspective for children that is also a great lesson for how to use things that they own.

“So Joseph made a book about it. Which shows you can always make something out of nothing.” A cute hidden message at the end of this story.

As you turn the pages of this book, holes are cut in the pages and cleverly used to show what Joseph will make next out of his clothing. The illustrations are colorful and full of patterns. It is no mystery how this book came to be a Caldecott winner.

This book tells a story of a hammy-down overcoat that is so old it eventually turns into nothing. The message of this book is that everyone has something they love and possess and you can always make something out of nothing. A good use of transformation was used as the overcoat transformed all the way into a book. Award: Caldecott Medal; Published: 1999; Illustrator: Simms Taback
