No book has captured the magic and sense of possibility of the first snowfall better than The Snowy Day. Universal in its appeal, the story has become a favorite of millions, as it reveals a child's wonder at a new world, and the hope of capturing and keeping that wonder forever.
The adventures of a little boy in the city on a very snowy day.
"Keats's sparse collage illustrations capture the wonder and beauty a snowy day can bring to a small child."—Barnes & Noble
"Ezra Jack Keats's classic The Snowy Day, winner of the 1963 Caldecott Medal, pays homage to the wonder and pure pleasure a child experiences when the world is blanketed in snow."—Publisher's Weekly
"The book is notable not only for its lovely artwork and tone, but also for its importance as a trailblazer. According to Horn Book magazine, The Snowy Day was "the very first full-color picture book to feature a small black hero"—yet another reason to add this classic to your shelves. It's as unique and special as a snowflake."—Amazon.com
I don't need an "enhanced" edition!
I read this book as a kid and wanted a copy for my iPad, but 40 megabytes is ridiculous just to see falling snow. The magic of this book lies in the beautiful illustrations and sweet, simple story; the snow is distracting and bloats the file size. As for the audio, not everyone needs it.
I downloaded the sample, but won't be buying the book; offer an original, "unenhanced" version and I'll buy it.
