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. ( )

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
