In 1962 Ezra Jack Keats authored and illustrated the children's book, The Snowy Day.
It was the time of the civil rights movement in our country. Today New England is braced for another snowy day- an historic blizzard threatens our coast line and up to 30 inches of snow is predicted for our region. People have been working hard in preparation for the epic event. Mother Nature strikes mighty blows sometimes. Be safe and warm, everyone. Snuggle up and read so we can weather this storm and the other storm we fight against illiteracy in this developed nation. Literacy could be the civil rights movement of our time.
