In 1962, The Snowy Day was revolutionary, ushering in an era of cultural and artistic change in children’s books still apparent today. Its vibrant colors, cut-paper collages and graphic style brilliantly convey the sensations felt by young children. That Peter, the central character, was African-American and living in a crowded city offered an experience that was new to children’s books, yet familiar to any child who has ever played in the snow. Ezra Jack Keats had a way of seeing through a child’s eyes, enchanting readers the world over with a gentle tale as fresh today as it was more than 50 years ago.
