Recommended Reading for Kids: The Snowy Day
The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, is one of the Reading Kingdom’s recommended books for children. Reading expert and Reading Kingdom creator, Dr. Marion Blank explains why:
It’s wonderful how a talented artist can make us see, with fresh and enchanted eyes, the beauty in the simple story of a boy waking up to see that snow has fallen during the night. The child celebrates the day via a series of simple adventures that any child can relate to–experimenting with footprints, knocking snow from a tree, creating snow angels, and trying to save a snowball for the next day.
The book is deservedly a Caldecott Medal winner that you and your child can enjoy again and again
