About This Book
The Snowy Day, a 1963 Caldecott Medal winner, is the simple tale of a boy waking
up to discover that snow has fallen during the night. Keats's illustrations,
using cut-outs, watercolors, and collage, are strikingly beautiful in their
understated color and composition. The tranquil story mirrors the calm presence
of the paintings, and both exude the silence of a freshly snow-covered
landscape. The little boy celebrates the snow-draped city with a day of humble
adventures--experimenting with footprints, knocking snow from a tree, creating
snow angels, and trying to save a snowball for the next day. Awakening to a
winter wonderland is an ageless, ever-magical experience, and one made nearly
visceral by Keats's gentle tribute.
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.
