About the Author

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 DayWhistle for WilliePeter's ChairA Letter to AmyGoggles, and others.

My 2 year old has loved Ezra Jack Keats' books about Peter since he was 9 months old. We bought this one in preparation for a new baby and our son loves this one too.

My 2 yr. old loves this book. She can recite it by heart. It tremendously helped her adjust to the new routine involving her baby sister.

I'm a 14yr old girl who has been in love with this book since the age of three. I will forever cherish this book.I remember reading it over and over again when my little brother was born so i wouldn't feel left out.
