Erin E. Stead’s Favorite Caldecott

keats snowyday Erin E. Steads Favorite CaldecottThe Snowy Day (1963) by Ezra Jack Keats is my favorite winner of the Caldecott Medal because this book taught me how to see with my ears (crunch, crunch, crunch) and pay attention to the world around me. I think about it every time I walk through the snow and point my feet in and out.
