Snow time for sleeping

ric Carle always commands total engagement from children. His simple, deeply significant storylines and the bold, luminous shapes in his pictures (like modern stained glass) enthrall readers and invite them to make art themselves.

Dream Snow (Hamish Hamilton pound;14.99) is a tale of pure magic and Carle is at his most colourful, most painterly and most joyous.

The ale of a farmer's dream of snow falling is simpler than ever, yet powerfully connected to the human psyche. When the farmer wakes, his dream of snow has become real and he springs into action, transforming himself, his animals and all around him.

This is bound to be a seasonal favourite as a source of images that can be re-created for the classroom wall.
