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.
