The Snowy Day
By: Ezra Jack Keats
"When I think back to the earliest days of my childhood so many of those memories include my dad and books. On our weekly trips to the library I could choose any 3 books I wanted, and surely there was always at least one Ezra Jack Keats book in my little pile. I loved them all, but The Snowy Day was my favorite. My dad must have read it to me hundreds of times, but I never tired of snuggling up next to him and listening to him make the crunch, crunch, crunch sounds as Peter’s feet sank into the snow.
I received so many gifts from my dad, but one of the most important was the love of reading, and that love started with books like The Snowy Day."
“Down fell the snow – plop!—on top of Peter’s head.”
