"Keats's sparse collage illustrations capture the wonder and beauty a snowy day can bring to a small child."—Barnes & Noble
"Ezra Jack Keats's classic The Snowy Day, winner of the 1963 Caldecott Medal, pays homage to the wonder and pure pleasure a child experiences when the world is blanketed in snow."—Publisher's Weekly
"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."—Amazon.com

This book is beautiful! The original work of the author is just beautiful. The story itself is sweet and endearing. I think this is simply a timeless piece of art. I hope to read it to my children in the future. This version of the e-book has animations that make the pictures come alive. There is also an audio version. I am a person that prefers physical books, however, I think there is a time for a book such as this. I can see children loving the extra animations and the read-along recording. I think we need to expose children to physical books, however, we need to realize e-books are the future for children. Let’s embrace thsi fact and let thier first encounter with a quality book physical or not be in the presence of family.
cutest book ever
i love this book! it’s so sweet and has such incredible illustrations
please do not "enhance."
i would buy this book if it was not enhanced... this is where ebooks go wrong for picture books. the snowy day won a caldecott medal for the wonderful art... moving snowflakes are an ugly distraction.
