The Snowy Day, a 1963 Caldecott Medal winner, is the simple tale of a boy waking up to discover that snow has fallen during the night. Keats's illustrations, using cut-outs, watercolors, and collage, are strikingly beautiful in their understated color and composition. The tranquil story mirrors the calm presence of the paintings, and both exude the silence of a freshly snow-covered landscape. The little boy celebrates the snow-draped city with a day of humble adventures--experimenting with footprints, knocking snow from a tree, creating snow angels, and trying to save a snowball for the next day. Awakening to a winter wonderland is an ageless, ever-magical experience, and one made nearly visceral by Keats's gentle tribute.
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. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Perfect for my toddler who likes to "read" her books while she's still in her crib. The board book pages can't be ripped like an ordinary book.Published 7 days ago by Margaret L. O'Leary
This was a very, extremely large board book. I wish that this Seattle Library would have had the decency to describe it so. It will not fit into my binds in my classroom. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Robert

While it would be nice to say that it's shocking that "The Snowy Day" was ground-breaking 52 years ago, it's obvious we've not come quite far enough to forget the fact that... Read morePublished 19 days ago by Dione Basseri
