Joseph Had a Little Overcoat

Written and Illustrated by Simms Taback

Based on a Yiddish song, the story is about Joseph who has a striped overcoat. Over time, the coat wears out and became full of holes, but Joseph always finds another use for it. Readers can look through die-cut holes in the book to guess all the many ways Joseph transformed his striped coat.
