I would have an old colorful
jacket to show the kids. How many things could be made from this
overcoat? Name some of the items you could make?
Joseph has an old worn overcoat
that he recycles into many different items like a jacket, a vest, a scarf
and many more. You must read this festive and fun book to see what
Joseph comes up with? The pages are bright and colorful with cut-out
shapes on several pages. When you look at the cut-outs maybe you
can guess what item Joseph will make next. Enjoy this funny and humorous
book. (Karen Womack, graduate student, <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Can you imagine a piece of
clothing that shrinks until it totally disappears but then becomes something
entirely different and wonderful? Put this tale in a book with "windows"
and brightly colored surprises on almost every page and you have a 'must
read' delight for your mind and your eyes. (Jeannie Bellavance email@example.com.

I would start with my famous
quarter trick, where I make a quarter disappear and pull it out from a
child's ear, then say, "You can always make something out of nothing."
After that, I would pull out a piece of old woolen cloth and ask children
where they think this came from. Following this would be a discussion
about what I could now use the cloth for. A brief introduction of
this book would follow and show the parallel between this man and what
he did with his old coat. ("Naomi Bates" <firstname.lastname@example.org>)
