This month we begin an author study of Ezra Jack Keats! Keats is a Caldecott winner for his book The Snowy Day. Born in Brooklyn in 1916, Keats was inspired by the community he was a part of. He drew from his own experiences to tell stories which transcended culture, race and socioeconomic backgrounds.
By the time of his death in 1983, he had written and illustrated 24 children’s classics, and had illustrated 85 children’s books.
Check out his website for more information, a list of all of his books,
and fun activities!
