5.0 out of 5 stars An instant hit! May 7 2003
By Wayward
Format:Paperback
Charlie needs a cloak, and this book tells the story, from start to finish, of how he goes about to make one. It takes readers through the year, From spring sheep shearing through sewing by the winter fire, showing Charlie going through each step to create his own cloak from raw materials. The story is fun and educational, while the pictures are delightful telling a hidden story in themselves.
I highly reccomend this book to any family with young kids!

5.0 out of 5 stars from white fleece to red cloak June 15 2005
By Linda Pagliuco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Though it's rated at the pre-school level, I've found Charlie Needs a Cloak to be useful and entertaining for kids up to third grade. In my work as a museum educator, this delightful tale serves as a valuable intro to the world of pre-industrial textile production, especially in colonial America. The illustrations are humorous, which dePaola is famous for. Charlie needs a new cloak, and he takes the reader through the process of making one, from shearing his whimsical sheep, who help him with his work, to weaving, dyeing, and sewing the new garment. Too bad Charlie doesn't notice, as soon as he puts it on, that his favorite sheep is already chewing on his hem!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb preschool book! Dec 22 2006
By W. Cluff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:School & Library Binding|Verified Purchase
I enjoy dePaola's books very much, but this one I am extra enthusiastic about. I work in a classroom of 3,4 and 5 year olds, and I am responsible for selecting literature for, and reading to, the younger children in the class. Sometimes when I am reading a dePaola book I have to cut some of the narrative to keep their attention. I don't have to do that at all with this book. This is a book that will keep the 3 year old's attention and still offer something to the older children as well. A lot of the charm of this story is the pictures which feature the action outlined in the text as to what Charlie is doing and also clearly represents the agendas of a spunky sheep and craftly mouse. YOung children love to discover these little "surprises" within the illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone Else is Right... This is A Great Book May 24 2005
By aaa-Pam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
You may have thought that sheep have no opinions and that they are pushovers, but apparently that is not true. In this book by Tomie dePaola, which was ably described below and which I consequently will not outline again, the sheep are definitely concerned about what is happening to their wool and they are on every page expressing their concerns.

Five Stars. Hilarious and amusing for kids and adults alike. Good Read-aloud. Cute pictures.
