it is not a snowy day in san francisco at all - there is some lovely weather outside today. nonetheless, i am thinking about of one of my favorite kid's book, a snowy day by ezra jack keats. i read this book endlessly when i was little and the illustrations have stuck with me.
a biography of ezra jack keats says that he was the first American picture-book maker to feature a black child in a central role in literature. rad.
