I ordered The Snowy Day about six months ago after reading about it on another blog (which is no longer online or I'd give you the link.) We have read it a gazillion times and I just love this little book! It won the Caldecott Medal in 1963 for its beautiful and sweet pictures.
Benson spent the early part of his very own Snowy Day with Papa because both Benjamin and I were helping our florist friends deliver valentines flowers. Papa took all of the pictures you're about to see with the exceptions of the bath and sleeping ones-- when I was reading this book to Benson that night, I started thinking how so many of the pictures were similar. When I started putting this little blog together, I couldn't believe how Papa had captured Benson's very own Snowy Day so perfectly!
I nominate Papa Hunter for the Caldecott Medal in honor of Benson's Snowy Day!!!
