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.

Im so glad i got this book for my little girl (2 years old). It is very calming to read... much like when everything is still and quiet on a snowy day.
I wasnt sure if my little girl would like it as the pictures are quite simple and have blocks of colour, not like lots of today's books that seem to have lots of things going on on every page. But we have read it many times now and talk about the little boy and the snow and the snow suit.
