Product Description
"In this book sparkling with atmosphere, a small boy experiences the joys of a snowy day. The brief, vividly expressed text points out his new awareness."--The Horn Book. A Caldecott Honor Book. Full color.Amazon.com Review

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. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars My sons favorite book of 2009
My son, who was 5 at the time, took this book out at the school library and loved it. He talked about it so much that his teacher gave him a copy for Christmas and we have read it together many times. Its a great book for kids between 4-8.Yo Ho Ho Merry Christmas

5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful book
As with any book by Ezra Jack Keats, you cannot go wrong with the adventures of Peter on a Snowy Day.
His illustrations and text are beautiful and captivating.
Get this and anything else by this author and you will not be disappointed.
This is the essential EJK and won a caldecott, so no home with children should be without this book.

The official book for all those toddlers that love this song.(btw, the best version I have heard of the song is on Putomayo's Animal Playground.)

5-0 out of 5 stars Five Little Monkeys
The pictures, layout, and the large print is very good.
Most of all I like the fact it has a CD to help young
ones who are not at reading level. It is also good
to play while in the car while going on long or short trips.

5-0 out of 5 stars First book my daughter "reads" by heart
My 2.5-year-old daughter loves this book--both for me to read to her and for her to "read" to me. The pictures are clear and the additional text simple enough that she can read the pictures and get all the text right from memory.

1-0 out of 5 stars Unusable Product
This book was a Christmas present for my son.It looked okay on the outside, but the board pages were detached from the binding and the middle pages were upside down! I was very disappointed. It was worse than buying it used.I ended up going to WalMart to purchase a similar one.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Funny Rhyming Board Book for Rambunctious Readers
Most Americans are familiar with the popular nursery rhyme "Five Little Monkeys."Christelow takes this rhyme and illustrates it with cheery, lively colored-pencil illustrations, with a monkey mama and her five children.She opens the rhyme with a little bit of prose setup, as the monkeys prepare for bed -- then ends with a humorous illustration of mama jumping on her own bed, after the little monkeys finally fall asleep.

This story is about silliness, not moral instruction, but some parents may be concerned about the children's disobedience in persisting in their jumping. This is exacerbated by the fact that Mama later jumps on herown bed (although you might explain to bright children that adults are capable of safely engaging in activities that would be dangerous to children).In this sense the book can be taken as a cautionary tale against bed-jumping.But for most children it should be sufficient to explain that this story is intended to be silly, not serious.

The book is well illustrated, cheery, and lively, and toddlers will love the rhythmic repetition.One could wish that the opening and closing of the book rhymed as well, but it's still a fun read. ... Read more
