Ezra Jack Keats was born Jacob Ezra Katz in Brooklyn, New York on March 11, 1916. He was a mural painter for the Works Progress Administration (WPA) for three years before taking a job as a comic book illustrator. During World War II, he joined the United States Air Corp and was a camouflage afficher plus pattern designer. After the war, he changed his name to make his Jewish heritage less noticeable. He wrote and/or illustrated more than 85 children's books. The first book he illustrated was Jubilant for Sure by Elizabeth Hubbard Lansing, which was published in 1954. The first book he wrote was My Dog is Lost, which was published in 1960. His other works include Pet Show and The Snowy Day, which won a Caldecott Medal in 1963. He was also awarded the University of Southern Mississippi Medallion for outstanding contributions in the field of children's literature in 1980. He died of a heart attack on May 6, 1983.

children's book from 80's inner city à Name that Book (Janvier 2013)

Critiques

This is one of my favorite books. I have loved it since I was a child.

Peter is unhappy at no longer being the baby of the family and leaves..but not too far.

After returning home he paints his outgrown chair so it can be used by his sister.

This book is about a young kid names Peter, who woke up to a day full of snow! Young Peter made snowballs, and built a snowman. Peter was so excited to put a snowball in his pocket and keep it inside, until he reached in his pocket and was sad that is wasn't there anymore. He had a dream the sun rose and melted all the now, but when he woke up, it was another snowy day.

I recommend this book to a primary classroom. It is full of fun and relatable pictures that kids would enjoy looking at while reading the book to help their imagination. I think this book is great for younger kids because it they can share a relatable joy and happiness for snow, and or a sense of fear for something they love that could go missing in a dream.… (plus d'informations)
