Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book is an abbreviated account of the biblical story. Joseph receives a special coat from his father. Jacob is shown sewing a patchwork coat. The text states, "Of all his sons, Jacob loved Joseph the best." The brothers sell Joseph into slavery in Egypt, where he rises to prominence under Pharaoh and saves the area from starvation. The point: "God brought me here to save lives," is made along with stating the biblical origin of the twelve tribes of Israel. The parts about Potiphar's wife, Joseph in prison, and several trips to and from Canaan are omitted. An "Educator's Note" in the beginning advises parents to encourage their children to read by reading to them and talking about the story. Helpful background information is given at the end, such as "in those days only rich people could afford a coat." Children will enjoy the colorful cartoon-like pictures. 2006, Little Shepherd Books/Scholastic Inc, Ages 4 to 7.
