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.

A great picture book for winter Storytime's. The illustrations are vibrant and help the reader visualize what is happening. There are simple short sentences on each page allowing reluctant and beginning readers to enjoy the story. ( )

Another childhood favorite! This book follows Peter as he explores outside in the snow. There's only a sentence or two per page, so it's perfect for reluctant and beginner readers. ( )
