Something from Nothing
When Joseph's cherished baby blanket becomes old and tattered, his grandfather transforms the blanket into a wonderful jacket-and then into a vest, a tie, a handkerchief, and a button. When the button is lost, Joseph realizes that even his grandfather can't make something from nothing. But Joseph can-he immortalizes the blanket in this warm and loving adaptation of a Jewish folk tale. Text copyright 2004 Lectorum Publications, Inc.
