Snowy Day... and More Ezra Jack Keats Stories


Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Painterly illustrations, evocative sound effects, and delightful music bring to life Ezra Jack Keats's universal slice-of-life stories about growing up. Peter, a young African-American boy, awakens to all the joy, fun, and wonder of "The Snowy Day," a short film adapted from Keats's Caldecott Medal winner. In "Whistle for Willie," young Peter wishes he could whistle to his dog. In "Peter's Chair," Peter resents his new sibling after his father repaints his former baby furniture from blue to pink. In the blue-ribbon story "Pet Show," Archie must use his imagination after he can't find his cat to enter in a local contest. A viewing option allows budding readers to follow along with the onscreen text. In a "Getting to Know" segment included on the DVD, Keats engagingly talks about the real-life inspirations for his stories.
