Staff Reviews

Published in 1962, The Snowy Day is a timeless story of a young boy who experiences the fun of playing in the snow. Caldecott winner Ezra Jack Keats was praised for having an African-American boy as his character at a time of escalating racial tensions, but the story has appeal for anyone and everyone. My daughters loved reading of Peter's adventures and all the ways he found to enjoy himself: "Crunch, crunch, crunch his feet sank into the snow."

Being from a place that has very little snow, we can all enjoy the experience vicariously through Peter. And guess what stamps are on my Christmas cards this year. Yes, the commemorative ones honoring this delightful book!

Traducción en español del cuento clásico ganador de la Medalla Caldecott, Un día de nieve.

Es un día de nieve y Pedro sale a explorar. Mientras pasea entre montones de nieve apilada y observa a los niños grandes jugar a tirarse bolas gigantes--descubre los surcos que dejan sus pies en la nieve espesa y lo divertido que es hacer figuras de ángeles en la nieve.
