Joseph Had a Little Overcoat

In November I told Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Simms Taback to my group of children in the library in Sant Pol de Mar, Barcelona.

As well as enjoying the great story and learning the names of all the different clothing, we had a great time dressing up and singing the traditional song with the help of Anna Ginesta.

After all the singing and storytelling the children illustrated the story. This picture is by Carla

This one by Yaser

And finally this one by Naüja

And here is an animated excerpt from the video based on the book. The DVD is produced by Weston Woods/Scholastic, narrated by Rob Reiner and has a score that features authentic klezmer music.
