    This looks as if it's a well known favourite in the US but we had not seen this book and it couldn't be found in the library. We suggested they bought a copy, and obligingly they did. This is a lovely story of a young boy waking up to the excitement of his landscape transformed by snow...

    This was a really cute, simple story that my students enjoyed :) ...

    Until The Snowy Day (published in 1963), American children's books featured white children as the heroes (if you know of one that didn't, I'd love to hear about it). In the biography on his website, Ezra Jack Keats says: Then began an experience that turned my life around?working on...

    One of the great children's classics, and one of my kid's favorite books, and one of mine too. I love the beautiful art - the snowflakes on the last page, and the pattern on Peter's mom's dress. I love how uncalculated it is, how little it seems to be trying. It operates on a young kid...

    I loved this book. I wanted to read something about winter and snow. I miss having snow and I miss Michigan. The artwork is quiet and muted like snow. It is simple and really helps set the tone of the story. This is for younger kids or kids of all ages. It is simply told which again se...

    Gosh, this cover just takes me back to my childhood! I don't know that the book was ever a "favorite" of mine, but I do remember the little boy in his snowsuit (I was obsessed with that snowsuit!) and his fun in the snow. I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Ezra Jack Keats and hav...

    Ezra Jack Keats was a children's writer/illustrator primarily active during the 60s &70s. He was the 3rd child of Polish-Jewish immigrants and lived much of his life in his native Brooklyn, NYC. I could go on about that but what I want to focus on is this book and Mr. Keats' litera...

    Always having loved winter, freezing temperatures and naturally also looking at and playing in the snow (and indeed, considerably more than ANY other season, but in particular and especially absolutely and vehemently despising most of the summer with its high heat and horrible, sticky ...

    I like to imagine this book from the boy's parents' perspective. "But when he woke up, the snow was still there, and new snow was falling!" ..and dad is outside swearing as he tries to shovel out his snowed-in car so he can go to work. Meanwhile, mom has slipped and fallen on th...

    There's a reason this book is a classic, Keats was able to really listen to the phrase "less is more" when he created this perfect little kids book. The pictures are warm and inviting, they directly interact with the text, making each page a fun adventure playing in the winter. Peter e...

    Lovely little book I picked up on impulse. Beautiful collages of Peter having fun in the snow. Simple, sweet story of a young child on a winter's day. ...

    I haven't read this to my niece and nephew, and I don't know if I ever will. My mom read this to me when I was a kid, and I *love* this book. I love Peter's little red suit, I love the colors and illustrations in this book, I love the little snow angels and the little duck feet Peter m...

    This book looks really familiar, like maybe I actually read it as a child. I've learned that even though I thought that I read as a child I must have only read things that would never be deemed 'classics', or maybe I just only re-read the same books over and over again. This book cap...

    This book looks really familiar, like maybe I actually read it as a child. I've learned that even though I thought that I read as a child I must have only read things that would never be deemed 'classics', or maybe I just only re-read the same books over and over again. This book cap...

    If you ever played in the snow as a kid, it will bring back fond memories. If you read this picture book to young kids who have not yet experienced the pleasure of all the fun they can have in the snow, it will give them a taste of what it can be like, and it will most likely cause the...

    This book is also a part of the Kindergarten reading plan for our charter school and we read it today. Although I could see no great wonder in the story, or the "okay" illustrations that won a Caldecott award, my 5 yr old son's whole face was lit up during the entire read. Perhaps beca...

    This book is just downright adorable. Watching Peter enjoy his snow day reminded me of when I was a kid and would stay out as long as possible in my new found winter wonderland. The drawing of his snowsuit is too funny. The little part sticking up at the top is so cute. I'd read this t...

    There's a reason this book is a classic, Keats was able to really listen to the phrase "less is more" when he created this perfect little kids book. The pictures are warm and inviting, they directly interact with the text, making each page a fun adventure playing in the winter. Peter e...

    This book looks really familiar, like maybe I actually read it as a child. I've learned that even though I thought that I read as a child I must have only read things that would never be deemed 'classics', or maybe I just only re-read the same books over and over again. This book cap...

    This realistic fiction story provides detailed illustrations to place the reader in a winter backdrop with a story about a little boy named Peter waking up to a beautiful snowy day. It?s a great story for someone who has not experienced a snowy day because the author provides insight...

    I picked this up at my library the other day and was amazed to see the 50th Anniversary sticker on the cover. Really? FIFTY? No matter, this lovely story is timeless and adorable and wonderful. May it live another 50 years... and more. 2008 Truly classic, wonderful and timeless. ...

    If you ever played in the snow as a kid, it will bring back fond memories. If you read this picture book to young kids who have not yet experienced the pleasure of all the fun they can have in the snow, it will give them a taste of what it can be like, and it will most likely cause the...

    This book is also a part of the Kindergarten reading plan for our charter school and we read it today. Although I could see no great wonder in the story, or the "okay" illustrations that won a Caldecott award, my 5 yr old son's whole face was lit up during the entire read. Perhaps beca...

    Peter wakes up to a snow covers world outside his window.in his red snow suit he sets out to explore this new world. The snow makes wonderful crunching noises as he leaves footprints behind him. Them he drags his feet and leaves long streaks in the snow.he uses a stick to make a third ...

    This book looks really familiar, like maybe I actually read it as a child. I've learned that even though I thought that I read as a child I must have only read things that would never be deemed 'classics', or maybe I just only re-read the same books over and over again. This book cap...

    This realistic fiction story provides detailed illustrations to place the reader in a winter backdrop with a story about a little boy named Peter waking up to a beautiful snowy day. It?s a great story for someone who has not experienced a snowy day because the author provides insight...

    I picked this up at my library the other day and was amazed to see the 50th Anniversary sticker on the cover. Really? FIFTY? No matter, this lovely story is timeless and adorable and wonderful. May it live another 50 years... and more. 2008 Truly classic, wonderful and timeless. ...

    This book is adorable! We share Peter's adventures as he plays through a great day of snow, making snowballs, a smiling snowman, a cute snow angel, and walking around making different tracks and patterns! ...

    This looks as if it's a well known favourite in the US but we had not seen this book and it couldn't be found in the library. We suggested they bought a copy, and obligingly they did. This is a lovely story of a young boy waking up to the excitement of his landscape transformed by snow...

    This was a really cute, simple story that my students enjoyed :) ...

    Until The Snowy Day (published in 1963), American children's books featured white children as the heroes (if you know of one that didn't, I'd love to hear about it). In the biography on his website, Ezra Jack Keats says: Then began an experience that turned my life around?working on...

    One of the great children's classics, and one of my kid's favorite books, and one of mine too. I love the beautiful art - the snowflakes on the last page, and the pattern on Peter's mom's dress. I love how uncalculated it is, how little it seems to be trying. It operates on a young kid...

    Here are the things I discovered about Mr. H, my grandson with this book. He wants to ski...He's four years old and has never seen anyone ski in real life. Also, Mr. H is hoping for "lots and lots" of snow this winter...he doesn't have to shovel. And last, he loves this book and Peter ...

    I loved this book. I wanted to read something about winter and snow. I miss having snow and I miss Michigan. The artwork is quiet and muted like snow. It is simple and really helps set the tone of the story. This is for younger kids or kids of all ages. It is simply told which again se...

    ?The Snowy Day? is a Caldecott Medal Award winning book by Ezra Jack Keats that details Peter?s adventures on a snowy day. ?The Snowy Day? is clearly one of Ezra Jack Keats? most enchanting books for children! Ezra Jack Keats has done a great job at both illustrating...

    Gosh, this cover just takes me back to my childhood! I don't know that the book was ever a "favorite" of mine, but I do remember the little boy in his snowsuit (I was obsessed with that snowsuit!) and his fun in the snow. I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Ezra Jack Keats and hav...

    Ezra Jack Keats was a children's writer/illustrator primarily active during the 60s &70s. He was the 3rd child of Polish-Jewish immigrants and lived much of his life in his native Brooklyn, NYC. I could go on about that but what I want to focus on is this book and Mr. Keats' litera...

    Always having loved winter, freezing temperatures and naturally also looking at and playing in the snow (and indeed, considerably more than ANY other season, but in particular and especially absolutely and vehemently despising most of the summer with its high heat and horrible, sticky ...

    Looking at this book actually made me tear up a little. Going through some boxes I saw this lying at the bottom and was instantly transported across space and time to my childhood. I remembered for the first time in many many years a time when I was innocent, and a certain clarity th...

    The minimalist art really adds to this story of discovery. Will take you back to a time when the world was filled with endless possibilities. ...

    I like to imagine this book from the boy's parents' perspective. "But when he woke up, the snow was still there, and new snow was falling!" ..and dad is outside swearing as he tries to shovel out his snowed-in car so he can go to work. Meanwhile, mom has slipped and fallen on th...

    There's a reason this book is a classic, Keats was able to really listen to the phrase "less is more" when he created this perfect little kids book. The pictures are warm and inviting, they directly interact with the text, making each page a fun adventure playing in the winter. Peter e...

    If you ever played in the snow as a kid, it will bring back fond memories. If you read this picture book to young kids who have not yet experienced the pleasure of all the fun they can have in the snow, it will give them a taste of what it can be like, and it will most likely cause the...

    This book is also a part of the Kindergarten reading plan for our charter school and we read it today. Although I could see no great wonder in the story, or the "okay" illustrations that won a Caldecott award, my 5 yr old son's whole face was lit up during the entire read. Perhaps beca...

    This book is just downright adorable. Watching Peter enjoy his snow day reminded me of when I was a kid and would stay out as long as possible in my new found winter wonderland. The drawing of his snowsuit is too funny. The little part sticking up at the top is so cute. I'd read this t...
