What a beautifully illustrated story about the snow falling and covering the animals. It turns to Christmas and Santa has been busy. At the end the Christmas tree lights up(a favorite for the children) age k

A farmer dreams that he and his farm animals (named One, Two, Three, Four, and Five) are covered with a white blanket of snow. The snow is shown as a clear paged overlay. When he wakes up, he realizes it's been a dream. The magical mood of the rhythmic language is accentuated by silvery tones that come from a button we press at the end.

A farmer who appears to be santa clause has five animals. He named his animals one, two, three, four, and five. One day the farmer takes a nap and dream about blankets of snow. When he wakes up he realizes that it is Christmas. This book was very cute, it appeared to have 3D images. At the end of the story there was a page that showed his Christmas tree and it lite up. I think that a child can relate snow to Christmas or like children in Louisiana, we relate cold weather to Christmas. ( )

A farmer dreams of snow. His snowy dream covers him and his 5 farm animals with a white blanket of snowflakes. When the farmer wakes up from his nap he realizes his dream was not a dream. It really did snow a white blanket. He realizes that he had almost forgotten to decorate his tree for Christmas.

This story was very colorful. The clear paper with white snow was interesting to see.

Students could create their own Christmas tree and hang them on the classroom wall. Each student could describe to the class what their family does on the Christmas holiday.

This book is lovely to look at, but there's not much of a story here. It's about a farmer who has farm animals he calls "one," "two," "three," etc. It's near Christmas but it hasn't snowed on the farm yet. The farmer falls asleep and dreams of snow covering him and his farm animals. When he wakes up, he realizes that it has really snowed. He goes out to his barn and decorates a tree near his barn with Christmas ornaments and lights.

It's almost like Eric Carle had the artwork and then came up with some sort of lame narrative as an after thought. But the artwork is so lovely. When the farmer dreams of snow, there's an overlay that covers the animals with blankets of snow. At the end, when he decorates his tree there's a button to push in the back of the book that sets off a pleasing (non Christmasy) tinkly bit of music. When the farmer goes out after it's snowed he looks remarkably like Santa. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0399235795, Hardcover)

It's almost Christmas and it hasn't snowed yet. As the farmer naps on his small farm, he dreams of being covered in a gentle blanket of new snow. Then, one by one, he dreams of each of his five animals (aptly named One, Two, Three, Four, and Five) being covered as well. When he awakens, he discovers that real snow--not dream snow--has fallen. And "Oh my! Oh my! I almost forgot," the farmer shouts, and, bundling up, hurries out to his tree (named Tree) with a box and a sack, looking remarkably familiar in his white beard and red suit. After decorating Tree, the farmer shouts "Merry Christmas to all!" and pushes a button for a surprise Yuletide jingle.

Young fans of Eric Carle's The Very Quiet Cricket, The Very Clumsy Click Beetle, and other multisensory books, will delight in pushing the same microchip button the farmer pushes to hear the tinkling, oddly eerie holiday tune. In an even more unusual departure from standard picture books, Carle inserts a clear plastic sheet, covered with snowflakes and a white blanket, before each illustration of the dreaming farmer and his animals. Turn the plastic page to discover what kind of critter lies beneath the snow. Carle's magnificent collages, as always, are the heart and soul of his books. (Ages 3 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
