Winner of the 1963 Caldecott Medal

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 & 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."
