One December afternoon boy with dog and grandfather with beard take a walk to watch the sun begin to set over the river When the sun drops low in the sky they start home Buildings grow dimmer People are rushing As nature s lights go out one by one city s lights turn on revealing brilliant Hanukkah Kwanza and Christmas displays in streets homes and stores A stunning picture book that s sure to be a winter holiday classic by Caldecott Medalist Uri Shulevitz, i Dawn i is a New York Times Book Review Notable Children s Book of the Year and Outstanding Book of the Year, b i Snow i is a i New York Times i Outstanding Book of the Year and a Caldecott Honor Book b br i i br i It s snowing said boy with dog i br i It s only a snowflake said grandfather with beard i br br No one thinks one or two snowflakes will amount to anything Not the man with the hat or the lady with the umbrella Not even the television or the radio forecasters But one boy and his dog have faith that the snow will amount to something spectacular and when flakes start to swirl down on the city they are also the only ones who know how to truly enjoy it br br Uri Shulevitz playful depiction of a snowy day and the transformation of a city is perfectly captured in simple poetic text and lively watercolor and pen and ink illustrations, Three times a voice comes to Isaac in his dreams and tells him to go to the capital city and look for a treasure under the bridge by the royal palace Feeling a little foolish perhaps but determined to see for himself if the dream is true Isaac sets out on his long journey What he finds makes a surprising and heart warming ending to this retelling of a well known folk tale In a few words Cadelcott Medal winner Uri Shulevitz draws a man who is innocent enough to have faith in a dream and wise enough to understand the greatest reward of all br br Isaac s solitary journey his arrival at hte vast city and his discovery there are all enriched by Mr Shulevitz s beautifully detailed illustrations which masterfully capture the spirit of the original tale while keeping it simple enough for the very youngest reader br br i The Treasure i is a Caldecott Honor Book and a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year
