it was amazing
bookshelves: elementary-school, adventure-story

There's a reason this book is a classic, Keats was able to really listen to the phrase "less is more" when he created this perfect little kids book. The pictures are warm and inviting, they directly interact with the text, making each page a fun adventure playing in the winter. Peter explores many of my favorite aspects of palyign with snow, from snow ball fights (though he decides not to take part), to snow angels, to trying to hold on to snow even inside (even though the snow ball melts in his pocket). I think Keats just perfectly captures the wonder kids feel when going out to play in winter- I think a lot of adults could take a note from this book as well and have a little more fun when winter rolls around.

Asiabronson Completely agree that this book was good at showing having less if still more. In this book Keats shows how much fun the first day in the snow can be for a young child which is very fun! This book is very good with diversity as well! I agree with all your points!
