Joseph

By Brian Wildsmith
Most libraries probably own several versions of the popular biblical story about Joseph, but this one is well told and particularly handsome. Wildsmith's ink-and-watercolor artwork has never seemed more polished, his colorings more carefully shaded (especially where the blue of the desert sky meets the gold of the sand). He also uses the Egyptian setting of pharaoh's court to beautiful effect, making it come alive with pyramids and hieroglyphic-encrusted walls and spires climbing to the sky. The gilt edging of the pages also gives the book the glow of majesty. For any library needing (or wanting) just one more edition, this book makes a fine addition to religion shelves.

Joseph and His Coat of Many Colors
(Ready to Read , Level 1)

By Sue Kassirer
Retelling the biblical tale of Joseph and his brothers in short, staccato phrases, Kassirer comes up with a surprisingly effective book for young readers. The old story, with its themes of sibling rivalry, cruelty, and forgiveness, has lost none of its power over the centuries, as the producers of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat found out. In fact, this book would be a good introduction for young children, who will enjoy the musical much more if they know the basic plot. Jarecka's vivid, dreamlike pictures, shot with deep, sunny beams of pure color, interpret the story in a series of narrative tableaux and impressionistic dream scenes. A good old story for new readers.

Description from Booklist

Simple sentences in an easy-reader format describe the life of Joseph, who, after rising to a position of power in Egypt, forgave his brothers for selling him into slavery. Appropriately, each page is saturated with a wide spectrum of color, applied in an impressionistic manner that reveals the brush strokes.

Joseph and His Magnificent Coat of Many Colors

By Marcia Williams
Williams's exhilarating art, an uncommon blend of the primitive and the refined, illuminates the biblical story of favorite son Joseph, whose father gives him a glorious coat--here artfully embellished with rows of rabbits, fish, stars and circles. Sold to travelers by his jealous brothers, Joseph becomes a slave in Egypt, where he impresses the Pharaoh with his ability to interpret dreams. When the young man warns that famine will follow years of plenty, he is appointed governor of Egypt, and eventually forgives his brothers and saves them from starvation. Intricate, variegated borders surround the three or four illustrated horizontal panels that fill most of these festive pages. Williams smoothly distills Joseph's saga, and sprinkles her pictures with contemporary dialogue and asides that make the tale all the more accessible to young readers.
