The Lovereading4Kids comment
Eric Carle’s distinctive glowing textured collages create a lovely story of a cosy, then snowy winter’s evening. A farmer lives on a farm with his animals One the horse, Two the cow, Three the sheep, Four the pig and Five the cockerel! Dozing by the fire on Christmas Eve after a busy day he dreams of falling snowflakes covering him and his animal friends with a white blanket. When he wakes up it has indeed snowed, and the farmer remembers what he still has to do. Children will enjoy lifting up the snowy flaps to find the animals hidden underneath and will love the surprise on the last page. ~ Andrea Reece
Dream Snow by Eric Carle
Eric Carle's only Christmas story is now a board book! Eric Carle's Dream Snow has become a contemporary Christmas classic since it was published more than a decade ago. Now it's the perfect board book for a new generation of Carle fans.
The edition includes board-book versions of the marvellous novelty elements that made the original so special - peekaboo animals hidden under the snow, the shimmering tree decorated for the holiday and glittery snowflakes on the cover. It's full of surprises as the Santa-like farmer dreams of snow on Christmas Eve, and wakes to discover real snow has fallen, just in time for him to give gifts to his cherished animals.
Imaginative and multi-sensory, it's a Christmas book that reveals the wonder of the season.
