The Snowy Day by:Ezra Jack Keats
In this book which has its's 50th anniversary of publication, a young child wakes up to find a snowy white world outside and eagerly puts on his snowsuit and goes out to explore. During the day he builds snowmen, pretends to climb high snow-covered mountains, and makes snow angels. He even makes a snowball to keep in his pocket when he goes back into his house at the end of the day, but later discovers it has melted away. That night he dreams of snow and sun and wakes to another "snowy day."
