Something From Nothing

Scholastic Press  1993

 
A lovable story based on a Yiddish song, this shows a little boy named Joseph growing older, his family and world getting larger, and the baby blanket Grandpa made him getting smaller and smaller as the fabric wears out. The remarkable illustrations tell several stories at once, showing shtetl life, scenes at cheder, and examples of resourcefulness that will last a lifetime. Another excellent version of this award winner is Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Sims Taback.
