The Snowy Day and Other Stories
Based on the book by Ezra Jack Keats, The Snowy Day celebrates the magic and boundless possibilities of the first snowfall! Follow Peter and his friends as they romp and play, starting snowball fights and making snow angels in this imaginative musical play about the childhood joys and challenges of growing up. Using innovative shadow puppetry, Keats’ treasured characters come to life in this humorous and fun adaptation of Whistle for Willie, Goggles!, A Letter to Amy, and The Snowy Day.
A classic since its publication in 1962 and winner of the Caldecott Medal in 1963, The Snowy Day was one of the first picture books for young people to feature an African-American protagonist.
