The Carousel by Liz Rosenberg with lovely illustrations of Jim LaMarche. At twilight and the gloaming hour, two sisters walk through the park. As they approach the canvas covered carousel, they hear the sound of hoofs and the whinny noises of horses. Mor. rivia About The Carousel.

The carousel horses sleep all winter and wake in the spring, two sisters . The soft, dark gray-blues and lavenders of the pictures are accented by warm, glowing street lights and lighted houses.

The carousel horses sleep all winter and wake in the spring, two sisters remember their mother saying. Then one gray-skied February twilight. Rosenberg's atmospheric tale is greatly enhanced by LaMarche's (The Rainbabies) singularly luminous artwork; mist all but lingers on the pages, and his superb use of light and shadow underscores the element of magic threading through the story. The sense of wonder and delight on the girls' faces make this fanciful adventure an appealing one.

I didn't know much about it, but I am a nanny, and have grandchildren, and I figured someone would enjoy it. When I read it myself, I was a little dismayed - while I knew it would have been a book I would have loved as a child, I didn't think it would appeal to the 3 and 5 year old Atlanta boys that I care for. I was so wrong. From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 3?On a rainy day in February, two sisters stop by a park after school and peek into the pavilion that houses a long-stilled carousel. To their delight and amazement, the horses are whinnying and prancing around. Her sister climbs on a zebra and they gallop off together.

As a teacher of young children I can’t stress the importance of wordless picture books enough in both preschool and kindergarten

As a teacher of young children I can’t stress the importance of wordless picture books enough in both preschool and kindergarten. Often, this vital step in the early literacy process is skipped in a rush to teach letters and words. True reading isn’t just about decoding the printed words on a page; it is about gaining meaning from both words and pictures. Some of the skills that wordless picture books support are: Comprehension.

I ordered this out-of-print book on the recommendation of friends. I didn't know much about it, but I am a nanny, and have grandchildren, and I figured someone would enjoy it. When I read it myself, I was a little dismayed - while I knew it would have been a book I would have loved as a child, I didn't think it would appeal to the 3 and 5 year old Atlanta boys that I care for.

I was so wrong. Despite the darkness of the drawings, the complicated vocabulary (for a picture book), and the only characters being a pair of adolescent sisters (in New York City, my own home), the children were enrapt. We read it twice. I left it for their mother and she read it to them again. When I came back to work, we read it twice more. These are *very* typical, restless little boys, and I was astonished at the spell this magical book seemed to cast.

After that last reading, I took the book away and sent it off to my 10-year old granddaughter, who feels about horses much as the nameless sisters in the story do. But I'm thinking of ordering another copy. There aren't very many things that will so completely capture the attention of those little boys...

The Carousel is a magical tale of two little girls experience one night at the town carousel following the untimely death of their beloved mother. Neither over-sentimental nor maudlin, it is a touching tale of finding ways to reconnect to their lost mother and one of her favorite projects. The illustrations as noted are visually stunning, so beautiful that they alone are worth the price of the book. Share it with someone you love.

This book reminded me what it felt like to the local Carousels

This story was just too frenetic for my taste. Interesting concept though. But it was a rather dark story. Not one of my favorites.
