Episode Summary

EDIT
It's Red! It's Green!/Joseph Had a Little Overcoat
"It's Red! It's Green!" Cleo presents Leona with a large bag to make a point. She asks Leona to lift it, but Leona says that the bag is too heavy. To help drive the point home, Cleo reads the story Red Hat Green Hat, retold by Ed Ledbetter. In the story, two friends named Upendo and Kendi argue over the color of a girl's hat, which actually is a different color on each side. They learn that you can't always believe what your eyes tell you. Eventually, Leona learns this lesson too. Segments throughout the story focus on words starting with the letter "r." "Joseph Had a Little Overcoat" When Leona gets upset about some old, worn out books that are being thrown out, it reminds her of the events of a book -- Joseph Had a Little Overcoat. In the story, by Simms Taback, Joseph has a worn out old overcoat, so he keeps making smaller and smaller garments out of it. When he finally loses the last button, he writes a book about it. The events of the story encourage Leona to become creative with the old books. Segments throughout the story focus on words starting with the letter "j", such as "jump," "jiggle," "jog" and "jacket."moreless
