The Snowy Day

The Snowy Day, by Ezra Jack Keats, is a classic story that we love to read.  Winner of the 1963 Caldecott Award, it continues to engage the reader as Peter encounters a snowy day. The illustrations depict all of the ways in which Peter enjoys his snowy adventures.  Taking a picture walk through this book encourages young listeners/readers to anticipate the story.  It’s a fun book to read in anticipation of snowy weather!
