"In 1962, a little boy named Peter put on his snowsuit and stepped out of his house and into the hearts of millions of readers. Universal in its appeal, this story beautifully depicts a child’s wonder at a new world, and the hope of capturing and keeping that wonder forever. The quiet fun and sweetness of Peter’s small adventures in the deep, deep snow is perfect for reading together on a cozy winter day." Penguin Books

The Snowy Day tells the story of a young boy who goes on an adventure the day after it snows. He walks along and describes everything he sees in his path. I love the details in this book, and I love that it is multicultural as well. ( )

Peter wakes up to find snow outside his window. What will he do with this day? Follow Peter as he enjoys the simplest of joys outside, by himself, in his red snowsuit. All is not pure joy. There is a little disappointment and read to find out if Peter gets to play in the snow another day, or if the fun lasts just for one day. ( )
