Contributor Bio(s): 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 DayWhistle for WilliePeter's ChairA Letter to AmyGoggles, and others.

While lacking the original smaller-size picture book's intimacy, this large-size board book edition of Keats's Caldecott Medal winning classic would work well for group sharing.

This fiftieth-anniversary edition is appended with eight pages of background material about the 1963 Caldecott Medal winner. Included are fascinating tidbits about the creation of both text and collage art, a letter to Keats from Langston Hughes (saying he wished he had grandchildren to give the book to), and photos of and quotes from Keats. Copyright 2012 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Because of the boldness of Keats's graphic images, this classic story about a small boy experiencing the joys of a snowy day works well as a board book. The shiny pages even enhance the effect of the collagelike art. Nevertheless, the story seems better suited to a picture-book audience. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews
