It's December 24th, and a kindly old man says good night to all the animals in the barn. As he settles into bed, he wonders when it's ever going to snow. He dreams that a snowstorm comes and covers him in a snowy blanket while he sleeps. Then he dreams that a snow blanket covers each of the animals in the barn, one by one. As we read, we lift snowy-white acetate pages for each animal to discover which one is behind them.
When the man awakens, he finds that the animals have not been buried by the snow, but that it has snowed quite a bit. Finally he remembers something... He goes back outside, puts some gifts underneath the tree for his animals, and presses a button that activates a snowy melody. In true Eric Carle fashion, the button is a real button that the reader presses in order to activate the melody.
