The Snowy Day - Ezra Jack Keats

The Snowy Day is a fun book that most students can relate to in some way. The main character wakes up to a snowy day where a full day of adventure awaits him. The book lets readers see his adventure unfold. This book is amazing, because it supports the importance of allowing children to wonder and imagine. It would be great to read around Christmas or the winter where students can connect their personal experiences of snow or a fun adventure they took part in. An extension activity could consist of students writing about these experiences or using their imaginations to write about a snowy adventure. A sequencing activity could also take place that represents Peter's day.
