This fiftieth-anniversary edition is appended with eight pages of background material about the 1963 Caldecott Medal winner. Included are fascinating tidbits about the creation of both text and collage art, a letter to Keats from Langston Hughes (saying he wished he had grandchildren to give the book to), and photos of and quotes from Keats.

While lacking the original smaller-size picture book's intimacy, this large-size board book edition of Keats's Caldecott Medal winning classic would work well for group sharing.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 1996
Because of the boldness of Keats's graphic images, this classic story about a small boy experiencing the joys of a snowy day works well as a board book. The shiny pages even enhance the effect of the collagelike art. Nevertheless, the story seems better suited to a picture-book audience. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews
