One December night, a child dreams of an old man who makes something secret in his workshop that he later brings to the child's house through the falling snow. Jon Agee's first published picture book is a simple, magical story for the holidays of a Christmas dream come true.
Even more than a full-scale creation, a minimal book calls for some imagination, subtlety, or style-all of which are absent here. A small boy, drifting into sleep as the snow falls, conjures up ""an old man/like my grandpa/who dances a jig/stretches/and arrives/at a workshop. Since said old man is a jolly, cotton-bearded caricature (hardly credible as the grandfather of almost any small boy), the mere word ""workshop"" is a tip-off to what follows.
If Snow Falls is an enchanting little book about a child who dreams of an old man who works magic in his little workshop, packs up his magic and then goes across snow to deliver this magic. The text is described as unfolding like a lullaby. Your children do not need snow to enjoy this little Christmas masterpiece of a dream-come-true. Just be prepared to read it again and again and again! A wonderful December stop with your kids is your local library or bookstor. aybe if just to experience If Snow Falls.
