Caldecott Medal Winner

Staff Pick

Young Peter wakes up to find that snow has fallen — and he can't wait to go outside and play! Though he's disappointed later when he finds out that he can't save a snowball in his pocket, his sadness melts when he wakes up the next morning to yet another day of snowy fun. Keats's collage-style illustrations are wonderful — especially the sharp contrast of Peter in his red snow suit (with its little pointy hood!) against the snowy landscape. Keats's classic Snowy Day beautifully captures a child's sense of wonder.

No book has captured the magic and sense of possibility of the first snowfall better than The Snowy Day. Universal in its appeal, the story has become a favorite of millions, as it reveals a child's wonder at a new world, and the hope of capturing and keeping that wonder forever.

The adventures of a little boy in the city on a very snowy day.

"Keats's sparse collage illustrations capture the wonder and beauty a snowy day can bring to a small child."—Barnes and Noble

"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

"The book is notable not only for its lovely artwork and tone, but also for its importance as a trailblazer. According to Horn Book magazine, The Snowy Day was "the very first full-color picture book to feature a small black hero"—yet another reason to add this classic to your shelves. It's as unique and special as a snowflake."—Amazon.com

Rosemary Simm, August 30, 2006 (view all comments by Rosemary Simm)
My daughter is moving to Ohio with her two young boys who have never seen snow. I read this book to them, and now they are so excited. It's a wonderful book, and the author, Ezra Jack Keats, really knows how childrens minds work. This book will more than likely be replaced a few times over the years.
