The Snowy Day
Story & Illustrations by Ezra Jack Keats

Review by: Christina Mark

     This is a story about a small boy named Peter who has one magical day playing in the snow.  The reader follows Peter as he walks through the snow, leaving footprints behind as he walks with his toes pointed in and then again with them pointed out.  He witnesses a snowball fight, which he becomes a victim of, and then proceeds to make snow angels and a snowman.  He then slides down a hill of snow and pockets some of the snow as a souvenir before heading into his warm house.
    This book really captures the innocence of children and their wonderment of the world around them.  It's hard to read this book without conjuring up images from your own childhood.  The illustrations are truly captivating with each page displaying beautiful artwork.
    This book, although based on such a simple concept, really epitomizes just what it is to be a child exploring the beauty of nature.  I think children really enjoy this book because they ARE Peter.  They would do everything that we see Peter do, from whacking a tree with a stick to release the snow from its branches, to building a happy, smiling snowman.
    I recommend this book for children between the ages of 2 and 7.
