Item description for Dream Snow by Eric Carle...

When Christmas Eve arrives and there is no snow on the ground, the old farmer worries about what will come of this special holiday, yet in the morning, his prayers are answered as he awakens to the farm blanketed in white.

Publishers Description
It's December 24th, and the old farmer settles down for a winter's nap, wondering how Christmas can come when there is no snow It is in his dream that he imagines a snowstorm coming and covering him and his animals--named One, Two, Three, Four and Five--in a snowy blanket.

But when the farmer awakens, he finds that it has really snowed outside, and now he remembers something Putting on his red suit, he goes outside, puts some gifts under the tree for his animals, and presses a button near a Christmas tree, creating a most surprising musical treat for children everywhere.

"Few in number are the parents who have made it through their toddler's years on just one copy of Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Dream Snow has similar ingredients: a simple story, lively collage-like illustrations and a fun gimmick for little hands . . ." --Time

"This is a simple, well-told story about a simple farmer. . . . Viewers. . . will want to get their hands on it." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Carle fans and toddlers learning the basics will . . . enjoy the gentle text and creative design features." --Booklist

"The pictures are in Carle's trademark richly colored and textured collages that capture the snowy magic of Christmas." --Kirkus Reviews

More About Eric Carle

Eric Carle The secret of Eric Carle’s books’ appeal lies in his intuitive understanding of and respect for children, who sense in him instinctively someone who shares their most cherished thoughts and emotions.

The themes of his stories are usually drawn from his extensive knowledge and love of nature—an interest shared by most small children. Besides being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. It is his concern for children, for their feelings and their inquisitiveness, for their creativity and their intellectual growth that, in addition to his beautiful artwork, makes the reading of his books such a stimulating and lasting experience.

Eric Carle has received many distinguished awards and honours for his work, including, in 2003, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his lifetime contribution to children's literature and illustration.

Carle says: “With many of my books I attempt to bridge the gap between the home and school. To me home represents, or should represent; warmth, security, toys, holding hands, being held. School is a strange and new place for a child. Will it be a happy place? There are new people, a teacher, classmates—will they be friendly?

I believe the passage from home to school is the second biggest trauma of childhood; the first is, of course, being born. Indeed, in both cases we leave a place of warmth and protection for one that is unknown. The unknown often brings fear with it. In my books I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. I believe that children are naturally creative and eager to learn. I want to show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun.”

Eric Carle has two grown-up children, a son and a daughter. With his wife Barbara, he divides his time between the Florida Keys and the hills of North Carolina.

Dream Snow  Jan 16, 2007
What a delightful book! Not only does it help develop a child's counting skills, but the pictures are wonderful and the surprise ending is sure to bring a smile! I not only have a copy of this book for my own child, but have given copies as gifts.
Dram Snow by Eric Carle  Jan 10, 2007
Although I liked this book (which I purchased for my grandkids), it is not one of my favorite Eric Carle books. It plays music at the end of the story, but it is very short and not very loud. I did like the see-through pages throughout the book.
Dream Snow  Jan 10, 2007
A delightful tale to brighten the holidays. This is one of Carle's finest!!! Each time I read it the children in the class were tickled with the magic at the end!! I would recommend it to moms,, dads, grams and teachers!!!
transmits the magic of Christmas like few other books  Dec 15, 2006
I have read this to my kids more than 100 times, and every time I feel as moved by the story as they are. This is simple and beautiful experience, bringing me back to dream moments in my childhood that now belongs to my children.
Dream Snow  Nov 3, 2006
You can't go wrong with Eric Carle! The kids love the music at the end of the story!
