The Snowy Day ~ A Great Way To Start The New Year

Do you remember your first snowy day?

The wonder of the landscape changing overnight..the hushed softness of the snow, the simple adventures building snowmen, children making snow angels and climbing mountains of snow and then sliding down.

The recent snowfall brought back all of those memories - so I had to go out and play!

Ezra Jack Keats 1962 Caldecott medal winning book "The Snowy Day" tells of the adventures of Peter. This is one of the first books I ever checked out of a library and perhaps the greatest piece of American literature, ever.
