Description

 

See below for English description.

Le grand-père de Joseph lui a fait une belle couverture quand il était bébé, mais à présent, elle est abîmée et délavée. Joseph ne veut pourtant pas se séparer de sa jolie couverture et il est persuadé que son grand-père peut la repriser. Par miracle, celui-ci transforme la couverture en objets tous plus utiles les uns que les autres. Est-ce que Joseph pourra lui aussi apprendre à faire quelque chose partir de rien?

Basée sur le conte hébreu Joseph’s Overcoat, l’histoire de Phoebe Gilman fait subtilement découvrir aux jeunes lecteurs un mode de vie perdu.

 

Joseph's grandfather made him a beautiful blanket when he was a baby, but now it's frazzled and worn. Joseph doesn't want to part with his special blanket and is sure that his grandfather can fix it. Sure enough, Grandfather miraculously alters the blanket into useful items again and again. Can Joseph also learn to make something from nothing?

Based on the Yiddish folktale Joseph's overcoat, Phoebe Gilman's subtly teaches young readers about a lost way of life.

Original title: Something from Nothing
