Meet the Author

Ezra Jack Keats

Ezra Jack Keats (1916–1983) is the Caldecott Medal winning author of The Snowy Day, which broke ground in 1962 as one of the first picture books for young children to portray a realistic, multi-cultural urban setting. Since its initial publication, The Snowy Day has come to be regarded as both a children’s classic and one of the most important picture books ever written/illustrated. Ezra Jack Keats’ legacy lives on in the popularity of his most famous character, Peter—the star of The Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Peter's Chair, A Letter to Amy, Goggles, and others.

    Very nice story

    My daughter really enjoys this book. Very nice story. Beautifully illustrated. A good book to explore how words can be used to create a full experiential picture. We will enjoy reading this again and again.

    Connecting Reading and Writing

    Ezra Jack Keats does a wonderful job with his book a 'Letter to Amy'. This book brings in the beauty of friendship and making choices. This book also opens up a wonderful way to expose children to connect reading to writing. Children can also get creative ideas on how to make their own invation to their birthday or other special parties.
