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 Day, Whistle for Willie, Peter's Chair, A Letter to Amy, Goggles, 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.
