Picture Book Picks of the Week

 My Pick of the Week

Title:  Joseph Had a Little Overcoat
Author and Illustrator:  Simms Taback
Review:  This book is terrific.  The story is about a Jewish man whose overcoat gets old and worn so he turns it into a jacket, then vest, etc, etc.  It inspires one to be resourceful while simultaneously learning about Jewish culture.

Sam's Pick of the Week

Title: Looking for a Moose
Author:  Phyllis Root
Illustrator:  Randy Cecil
Review:  Samuel wants me to read this book over and over again.  I wouldn't mind only this book gets me all tongue tied!  I was reminded of Dr. Seuss's "Fox in Socks."  Otherwise it's great!  The illustrations are unique and eye catching, and obviously kids love it.  


  1. I'll have to find "Joseph Had a Little Overcoat"! And it would be so cute if Sam reviewed some of the books! Like, gave his opinions. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Victoria that's a great idea! Maybe next time I'll quote him on stuff he says about the book.

  2. So enjoying seeing your picks vs. Sam's :) I haven't read Looking For A Moose, but I'm a huge Phyllis Root fan :)
