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.

I don't know if it is because it is a boy hero, because there is a dog, or because Ethan thinks it is funny when I pretend to try to whistle, but this is one of his absolute favorites. We read it 4-5 nights out of 7. It is wonderfully realistic with young Peter bouncing from one activity to another. And I love the way he keeps trying no matter what.
