    The Snowy Day, a 1963 Caldecott Medal winner, is the simple tale of a boy waking up to discover that snow has fallen during the night. Keats's illustrations, using cut-outs, watercolors, and collage, are strikingly beautiful in their understated color and composition. The tranquil story mirrors the calm presence of the paintings, and both exude the silence of a freshly snow-covered landscape. The little boy celebrates the snow-draped city with a day of humble adventures--experimenting with footprints, knocking snow from a tree, creating snow angels, and trying to save a snowball for the next day. Awakening to a winter wonderland is an ageless, ever-magical experience, and one made nearly visceral by Keats's gentle tribute. The book is notable not only for its lovely artwork and tone, but also for its importance as a trailblazer. According to Horn Book magazine, The Snowy Day was "the very first full-color picture book to feature a small black hero"--yet another reason to add this classic to your shelves. It's as unique and special as a snowflake.

    The fabulous Caldecott Award-winning illustrations work just as well for today's readers as they did for the ones in my generation. Timeless, classic story!

    The book, The Snowy Day was about a boy who woke up and was amazed by the snow day he had in his city. The book takes you through Peter's adventures dealing with the snow. This includes: building a snowman, making a snow angel and climbing mountains. The book was great in that many people can relate to the excitement that Peter experienced in this book. The book took you through Peter's entire day which was great. I really enjoyed the artwork throughout the entire book. An extension of this book could be seeing how Peter's day was the day after the snow day.

    This Caldecott medal winner perfectly captures a child's wonder as he sees the world anew under a blanket of snow. The simplicity of the illustrations and the accompanying text transport me back to my own childhood and the exhiliration of a solitary walk through unbroken snow. The timelessness of this story ensures its appeal to generation after generation of children.

    SummaryLittle Peter wakes up and looks out his window to see that during the night new fallen snow was on the ground. He runs outside after eating breakfast to walk thru the snow. He feels his feet sink in the snow, walks with his feet pointing in and out. As the story continues, his adventure grows as he is discovering what snow can do. When he keeps a snowball to take home only to discover it was gone left him sad. His dreams told him the snow was gone but hen he woke up the next morning more new snow is falling outside. He is excited to outside and calls his friend to join him.Personal ReactionAs I was reading this book, I couldn't help but think I was walking in the snow with Peter. His adventures as he is walking thru the snow are marvelous. Growing up in Wisconsin, i can certainly relate to what Peter is feeling. I LOVE THE SNOW! Always an adventure. Classroom ideas1. Each child can create a snow scene with materials provided, cotton balls, glue, white glitter2. The children can cut out and create snowflakes by folding paper several times and cutting out notches at the folds and hang them in the room for a snowy scene.

    A young boy wakes up to a snowy day and is eager to go out and explore. He is mesmerized by what snow can do and he learns about snow melting. I would use this book for children ages preK - 1st grade for the use of explaining the process of melting and because it is a simple book for kids to read if they are early learners.

    I like this book because it helps readers reminisce about snow days that they have had. It also gives a snapshot of a snow day to those who do not live where it snows. The illustrations are just clear enough that you get the general idea of what they should be, but it also is basic enough that you can use your creativity to create the full picture in your mind. This was especially apparent when it showed Peter walking past houses that were just large colored rectangles. They had no house features, but the reader still recognized that they were houses. It was also engaging how the words tied in with the pictures. The reader was forced to look at the pictures when it talked about how Peter was walking with inward and outward pointed toes. I think the message of the book was that there are many fun things you can do on a snow day, so you should not just stay inside the house; you should go out and enjoy the rare treat of snow.
  • (3/5)
    In my opinion this is a great book for young readers because of the illustrations that enhance the story and the engaging writing. The author uses a lot of adverbs to describe the activities the character is doing in the snow, teaching children a variety of activities to do on a snow day as well as a variety of descriptive words. I think the message of the story is to take advantage of the opportunities in front of you because the main character certainly took advantage of it snowing by playing in the snow the entire day.

    Summary:"The Snowy Day" is a book about a little boy who goes out to play in the snow. He makes tracks with his feet inward and outwards, and then he makes a new track with a stick. He then wants to have a snowball fight with the older boys but knows he can't yet because he is not old enough, so he makes a snowman, a snow angel, and pretends he is a mountain climber. He then goes home and dreams about how the sun would melt all the snow, but when he wakes up the snow is still there and more is coming down. So he gets a friend and they play in the snow again.Personal Reaction: I love this book because I am a huge snow fan! Every winter I want it to snow all day everyday. I love making snowman and snow angels, you can never be too old for that kind of stuff!Classroom Extension Ideas:1.Make snowman out of cotton, or marshmallows. 2. Draw each event that the little boy does throughout his snowy day.

    I really liked this book! I liked I because I found that children could relate to it. I also liked it because of the illustrations. The pictures on each page matched very well with the text of that page. The illustrations enhance the story. The language used in the text was very descriptive. For example, one of the pages, the little boy is walking through the snow and it says "crunch, crunch, crunch." I believe the purpose of this book is just for pure entertainment. I do not believe there was some secret message, or underlying theme. It was just a good read!

    On of my favorites growing up. Love Keats!

    I really liked this book because it is a fun multicultural book!. I really enjoyed learning a little but about the author when reading this text to find out that this was the first book to portray an African American as the main character. I really like this book because children would be able to relate to Peter while he is playing in the snow, but also wishing for it! This text would be a great starter book for a beginning reader to read independently. The Caldecott Medal was awarded for synergy between the text and the illustrations. The illustrations were colorful and engaging.

    The Snowy Day is a story about a little boy who wakes up to a snow day. He goes out to play in the snow and then he comes in to tell his mother about everything he did.This book may not be as important as the statement it made when it was published. That being said, the illustrations are wonderful and they have great synergy with the text. It's favorite childhood book material.

    This is a book I always read during the winter as a child, and every time I would wish for a snow day even though those are far and few in-between in PDX. This is a story about exploring at your own pace, and I think that is right up my preschoolers alley.

    I enjoyed this book because I loved the bright colored pictures as well as the descriptive words such as "crunch" when talking about the snow. This story brought back flashbacks of my own experiences in the snow as a child and what you do when it snows. I thought that the illustrations depicted the story in a great way using basic colors like reds and blues but not having too much detail. The writing flowed very well and there were just enough words on each page to keep the reader interested in finishing the book and finding out how Peter's snow day went. I would recommend this book for younger readers who have both experienced a snowy day and also those who dream about experiencing a snowy day for themselves.

    I had mixed feelings about this book after reading it. I really liked the language of this book. There were descriptive words like "crunch, crunch, crunch". The writing describes a snowy day for a little boy. He encounters a snowball fight, but is not old enough to play. Instead, he goes and makes a snowman and snow angels. This is realistic for students and I feel like they can relate this. The illustrations were very colorful too. It is easy for a reader to grasp the content of the story. I do not like how the story did not develop characters at all. There was the little boy as the main character. The reader is able to grasp that he is young because he isn't able to play in the snowball fight. Then on about the last page, a friend just comes out of no where. I did not like that part of the story. Characters were not developed well. In my opinion, the message of this story is to explore. The little boy explored the snow by himself. The next day he went exploring again in the snow, this time with a friend. Go outside and experiencing new things is the idea of this story.

    Summary:Peter wakes up one morning to see that it had snowed. He immediately gets his snowsuit on and goes out to venture in the deep snow. He made snowmen, slid down hills, and had a fun time telling his mom about his day. He later dreams the sun melts the snow away, but thankfully the snow kept falling all night and he enjoyed it again the next day.Personal Reaction: The pictures really show that it looks like it is snowing. And I enjoyed the fact that he made his own fun.Classroom Extension Ideas:1. Use cotton balls and glue to create what the students would build in the snow.2. Use plastic cups, shredded paper and glitter to make snow globes.

    This was a fiction picture book for 1st and 2nd grade students. Second grade students could read this alone, but 1st graders might enjoy the text more. This was a book about a young boy who went out into the snow and enjoyed the day outside playing. He tried to save a snowball in his pocket, but he could not. I recommend this because it was the first story about an african american that didn't involve slavery or anything similar. It just had a boy who was portrayed like an average child.

    The Snowy DayBryan O'KeeffeThis book was an honor to read. I did not read this book as a child and loved reading this book. The thing that stood out the most was the cute illustrations that were provided for the reader. I feel that they went along really well even though they were not extremely detailed. This story could have happened and the main character just seemed like a curious little boy who loved the snow. To me that describes a lot of boys when they are really young. For how simple this book is, the plot was really organized and describes his snow day adventures really well. The book could only be told from a third person point of view, the first person would have ruined the story and make it not as believable. One reason why this book is so good is because the message is so obvious; enjoy and discover the joy in anything.

    Summary:This book is about Peter and his snow adventures. Peter ventures outside to play in the snow and uses all of his senses to experience the snow that had fallen the night before. At the end of the day, Peter thinks about his fun in the snow and remembers the snowball he had put in his pocket - only to discover it has vanished. Peter goes to bed still thinking about the snow, and when he wakes the next morning he is happy to find another snowy day.Personal Reaction:This is a great book for early readers to read not only the text, but the illustrations as well. Definitely a great choice for a read-aloud book. The descriptions of Peter's experiences with how the snow felt, looked, and sounded create a very vivid image for readers and audiences who have also experienced playing in the snow. For a child who has yet to experience snow for the first time, this would be a great selection to introduce the elements of a beautifully fun day playing in the snow.Extension Ideas:1 - Students can collaborate by brainstorming to create a classroom poster listing their ideas of activities to do on a snowy day. After the brainstorming session, students can create their own snowy day illustration using the classroom brainstorming poster as a reference.2 - Using construction paper, Epson salts, and white glue students can create a snowy day collage/poster that involves hand-eye coordination and extra sensory input from the different textures of the materials.

    I think this book is a great book for a young audience. It normalizes the African American character doing things that every child does on a snowy day. The pictures are entrancing, and very unique. The book contains mostly pictures, so the illustrations really bring the life to the story. The book pushes readers to see everyone as equals.

    This was a nice children's book. It was short sweet and to the point. It shows the true wonder of a child's first snow day and how many adventures are possible when your mind is open to it. I did feel like it ended abruptly and there wasn't really a plot to the story. It just explained this child's love for the snow. It did remind me of my love for the snow as a child and how much wonder and excitement there is when it first falls! The illustrations were simple but every page was different- they were all of the little boy in a simple setting with snow and a different activity he was doing. It was an okay book, I thought there would be more of a story, but it's a good book for younger children.

    I liked the book, The Snowy Day because it is a fun multicultural book that would be excellent for introducing Winter into the classroom. A lot of children would be able to relate to Peter when he is building snow balls and making snow angels. My favorite part was when he hit the tree with a stick and a pile of snow fell on his head. This book is for pre-k through 2nd grade. I think this book is an excellent choice for a second grader to read independently but it is a little too easy for a read aloud. It is a short book with easy words. The fact that Peter is an African American is great, so that the African American students can relate to him in the class. The Caldecott Medal was awarded for the symmetry between the pictures and the text.

    Boy walks around exploring the snow and all that you can do with it while adventuring. He puts a snowball in his pocket to save for later and gets sad when it isn't there when he wakes up the next morning.

    This book details the snow day of a young boy. It shows what he does and where he travels throughout the day. It was a short easy read. The story itself was very simple and a little boring. It simply goes through the actions of the child with no real plot or excitement. It is not my ideal story. I felt very bored when reading as I imagine many children would as well. The pictures in the story were very simple and did not draw my attention. The people in the story were not drawn in detail making the characters hard to relate to. There was little emotion also making it difficult to put yourself in the story.

    Winner of the1963 Caldecott Medal winner. The illustrations are warm and inviting and directly interact with the text, making each page a fun adventure in the snow. Children who have never experienced a snow storm might find it hard to connect with this book.

    No book has captured the magic and sense of possibility of the first snowfall better than The Snowy Day. Universal in its appeal, the story has become a favorite of millions, as it reveals a child's wonder at a new world, and the hope of capturing and keeping that wonder forever.The adventures of a little boy in the city on a very snowy day.

    Summary: This book is about a little boy that played in the snow all day. When it was time to come inside he packed a snowball in his pocket. He was sad when he got out of the bath and the snowball had melted. He woke up the next morning expecting the snow to be gone, but to his surprise and excitement new snow had fallen. He went outside and played again.Personal Reaction: This is a sweet short picture book. It is very light hearted and is a fun read.Classroom Extensions: 1) I would have the children write a short paragraph about a snow day that they remember. If they can not remember one I would have them write about what they would think it would be like. 2) I would have the children cut out pictures of snowflakes with interesting and cool designs on them.

    Summary: A boy awakes to a snowy wonderland outside his home. After his exploring, he decides to pack a snowball into his pocket. When he arrives homes, he is saddened to see that the snowball had melt. Thinking the sun was going to melt all of the snow outside, the boy went to sleep upset. He woke up the next day to find that it was snowing even harder than it had been the day before!This was a simple, yet fun to read story about a young boy exploring the snowy atmosphere around him. The short and easy to read stanzas on each page featured things such as onomatopoeia to describe the boy's encounters. A great beginner book for children in grades K-2.
