The Snowy Day
by Ezra Jack Keats




Overview -
The magic and wonder of winter's first snowfall is perfectly captured in Ezra Jack Keat's Caldecott Medal-winning picture book. This 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition celebrates the classic beloved by generations of readers and listeners.

In 1962, a little boy named Peter put on his snowsuit and stepped out of his house and into the hearts of millions of readers. The Snowy Day transformed children's literature with its pioneering portrayal of an African-American child and the charming story and artwork that won it the Caldecott Medal. Fifty years later, Viking proudly celebrates Peter's adventure in this very special edition. Featuring eight pages of bonus material and a festive cover, this oversized edition of Keats's beloved book is a must-have.

Ezra Jack Keats was also the creator of such classics as Goggles, A Letter to Amy, Pet Show , Peter's Chair, and A Whistle for Willie.

(This book is also available in Spanish, as Un dia de nieve.)

Praise for The Snowy Day
New York Public Library's #1 book on the list of "Top Check Outs of All Time"

"Keats made Peter's world so inviting that it beckons us. Perhaps the busyness of daily life in the 21st century makes us appreciate Peter even more--a kid who has the luxury of a whole day to just be outside, surrounded by snow that's begging to be enjoyed." --The Atlantic

Ezra Jack Keats's classic The Snowy Day, winner of the 1963 Caldecott Medal, pays homage to the wonder and pure pleasure a child experiences when the world is blanketed in snow.--Publisher's Weekly
