What weabout it
This classic book communicates the magic of a snow day, when everything is blanketed in a thick layer of white.


Even for a kid who never sees the snow, this book brings to life the transformation that takes place when a city is blanketed in it.

Author Ezra Jack Keats’ collage-style illustrations effectively render that thick layer of white that coats every outdoor surface—rooftops, fence posts, street lamps—as well as the tracks we make when we move through it.

A sense of quiet permeates this story, except for the crunch, crunch, crunch of feet underneath. At just 16 pages with simple language and high-contrast images, this is a great pick for little ones.

A sweet bedtime book, with beautiful illustrations. Also I love that Peter isn't a white boy living in a suburban house AND it is just a regular story about everyday things. Perfect.
