When Peter wakes up one winter morning, he sees it immediately. Snow! Everything outside his window is covered—and transformed—by new-fallen snow.

What a day for adventure! Just after breakfast, Peter bundles up in his puffy red snowsuit and races outside. Cars are covered! Streets are covered! There's barely a path to walk, but there's plenty of room for discovery. Peter delights in every footprint he tracks, every tree branch he rattles, every snow angel he makes. How will this young explorer end his day?

Bright colors, soft illustrations, and a simple but remarkable sense of childhood amazement make this quiet classic a rich, relatable story.

About the Author

Ezra Jack Keats wrote The Snowy Day, one of the first picture books in which the central character is a minority child. It won the Caldecott Medal. Written for the under-five audience, his early stories focus on learning new things—how to whistle, outwit a tougher kid, or cope with emotion.
