Caldecott Medal books

Kindergartners have been very interested in "those books with the gold stickers" lately.  Today I had a Kindergarten class in the library to learn about those gold medals and I was reminded of a very famous book that is perfect for this time of year.

The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats won the Caldecott Medal in 1963.  That means this book is 47 years old! 

The Caldecott Medal is given out to one book every year that has the best or most meaningful illustrations.  I especially like part of the end of this book where the main character is thinking about his day outside.  If you didn't see the pictures, you would never know that he was doing his thinking in the bathtub!!!
