By Patricia VINE VOICE on February 8, 2011
Format: Hardcover
"Walt Disney's ONCE UPON A WINTERTIME", by Tom Oreb, is a wonderful little story, all told in RHYME! Jenny and Joe are boy-friend and girl-friend, living in the 1890s, from the stype of their clothing. They love to ice-skate, and love each other. But Jenny gets ANGRY at Joe....and speeds away on the ice. She does not see the sign, "Danger - Thin Ice"...and soon is in a LOT of trouble. Does Joe rescue her? And if so, HOW does he rescue her?

There is excitement, poetry, and wonderful illustrations in this book. It teaches children about poetry, wonderful art and suspence in stories.
It gives nostalgia to those who grew up with this book and story, and perhaps even more nostalgia to those who either lived during the 1890s,
(and I'm sure there ARE some of these people still around), and/ or the children of such people, now senior citizens themselves, who learnt about the 1890s from their parents, so throughly, that they feel they know that period almost as well as those who lived then. And younger history buffs, too! Lovers of costumes, and of whimsical illustration of all ages will have a field day looking at this book, and poetry buffs will find delight in the perfect rhymes within.

"ONCE UPON A WINTERTIME" also has nice little morals, on how one should contain one's anger, and how one should forgive those who have shown anger. (After all these years, I've just realized those morals are in this book!)

"...If ever there was a book for all ages / It's within THIS book's
pages! / A joy for all / Fascinating to know / This tale of Jenny / And her boyfriend, Joe!"

This Little Golden Book was my favorite story for my mother to read me at age four; consequently it was the first book I could "read" under my own power. The illustrations are still as droll but now the book is nearly sixty, I'd keep it a "read-to book" and supervise the average four-year old with it. It has no joystick, just joy at a "happy ending."
