The Snowy Day/Whistle for Willie DVD & Book Gift Set by Ezra Jack Keats

The 1963 Caledecott Medal winner, The Snowy Day, Ezra Jack Keats's lushly illustrated story of Peter, a young boy experiencing the year's first snowfall, has delighted millions of readers. When Whistle for Willie, featuring Peter and his dog Willie, followed in 1964, the New York Times wrote, “Mr. Keats' illustrations boldly, colorfully capture the child, his city world, and the shimmering heat of a summer's day.”

These two classics are now available together in a striking package. Complete with a DVD that includes a fillm of each book, this is a must have gift for the holidays.
