#27 - The Snowy Day My Ezra Jack Keats

Summary: The Snowy Day is the simple tale of a boy waking up to discover that snow has fallen during the night.

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.

Suggested Activity: Defrosting Animals
