The Snowy Day forever stamps, issued nationwide in October, are based on an award-winning children’s book by Ezra Jack Keats. In this Caldecott Award-winning book, a small boy named Peter experiences the joy of a snowy day. First published in 1962, this now-classic book broke the color barrier in mainstream children’s publishing. The vivid and ageless illustrations and text, beloved by several generations of readers, have earned a place in the pantheon of great American children’s literature. ezra-jack-keats.org.
