A gentle, lyrical story is set in motion by repeated words as a boy wakes up under blankets under blankets under blankets and goes out into snow on snow on snow to go sledding down down down the slopes.

I really wanted to enjoy this book more than I found myself able to. I love "In the Bleak Midwinter" which inspired the repetition in the book, but I just don't like the art and storyline enough to use it for storytime.
I liked the illustrations in this book. They are similar to Ezra Jack Keats and when I read the book to Kindergarteners, we compared illustrations from both authors.
March 2017 - the style reminds me of Ezra Jack Keats, except even more representational - none of the people have features. The text is lovely for a read-aloud. Ben got really invested in finding the dog and loved the happy ending.

I read this today at the library with my 3 and 4 year-old boys. They enjoyed it but I wouldn't say they were overawed. The patterning is good, the illustrations are simple, but not terribly impressive (clearly influenced by Ezra Jack Keats, though). All told, it was a fun romp with a satisfying ending, but not a keeper.
I really liked reading this book. I would use this story in my class, if my students are learning about weather. I would especially use this story, if we are focusing on winter. I would mainly use this to introduce weather. It would be more of a opening or attention grabber to discuss another lesson about winter.
It was interesting to read this with the kids and see who was able to catch on to the semi-abstract wordplay (blankets on blankets on blankets) more quickly than others. Plus I enjoyed the textured, colorful illustration
Just enough suspense to keep the preschoolers attention. Will the boy find his dog, Clarence after they've had a fun sled ride down the hill? Will they live "happily ever after, ever after, ever after"? Read this one to your favorite preschooler and find out!
This would be great for a middle school poetry unit. This book is based on Rossetti's poem "In the Bleak Midwinter." It'd be fun to do a project like thisoose your favorite poem and wrote a children's book based on it or based on your favorite line of the poem.
nice prose. clean bold pictures. short.
Fun storytime book that can be interactive with a dog puppet!
remniscent of the snowy daya boy loses, then recovers him dog while sledding in the snow.
Good mentor text for craft moves.
I really love the language and rhythm of the writing. A very simple story with a satisfying ending. #diversebooks
A baffling book. There's no real story; just a long succession of things on things on things. In the end the bright, blobby artwork loses its appeal.
