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."—Amazon.com

About the Author

Ezra Jack Keats (1916–1983) is the Caldecott Medal winning author of The Snowy Day, which broke ground in 1962 as one of the first picture books for young children to portray a realistic, multi-cultural urban setting. Since its initial publication, The Snowy Day has come to be regarded as both a children's classic and one of the most important picture books ever written/illustrated. Ezra Jack Keats' legacy lives on in the popularity of his most famous character, Peter—the star of The Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Peter''s Chair, A Letter to Amy, Goggles, and others.

From Our Editors

Hand picked by our Panel of Experts the IndigoKids Recommends program offers book suggestions designed to help you find the perfect book easily and confidently.

The magic of waking up on the first morning of a heavy winter snowfall is the wonder of a familiar landscape transformed into a sparkling fairyland. For the little boy in Ezra Jack Keats' extraordinary contribution to contemporary children's picture books, it's the delightful chance to explore his little urban world in a series of enchanting adventures. A marvellous collage of cutouts and watercolours, The Snowy Day offers a rare type of artistry for a picture book, beautifully combined with a tranquil tone children love. As he dons his red winter garments and sets off to explore his freshly altered environment, the little boy enjoys such simple explorations as making footprints, creating snow angels and carefully saving a snowball for the next day. A 1963 Caldecott Honor Book and a perennial favourite, The Snowy Day remains a magical tribute to the beauty of winter.
