This Author Defined the Childhoods of Many – Now, See His Works Brought to Life

Oh, the magic of childhood! This Sunday, witness a special event that pays tribute to Ezra Jack Keats’ most beloved works. Packed with humor and fun, The Snowy Day and Other Stories combines wonderfully innovative shadow puppetry and live action to showcase Keats’ beautiful appreciation for diversity. Don’t miss it on December 9th at 4:30 p.m.

Ezra Jack Keats is an author and illustrator best known for introducing multiculturalism into mainstream American children's literature. He was one of the first children’s book authors to use an urban setting for his stories and he developed the use of collage as a medium for illustration.

During The Snowy Day and Other Stories, follow Peter and his friends as they enjoy the excitement of a fresh snowfall, the delight of whistling for the first time, the awe in finding a special treasure, and the feelings of a first crush. An adaptation of Whistle for Willie, Goggles!, A Letter to Amy, and the groundbreaking Caldecott Winner The Snowy Day, this uplifting story collection encourages us to play and live life to the fullest each day.

Families are sure to cherish this heartwarming event. Get your tickets to The Snowy Day and Other Stories online or at the Dallas Children’s Theatre Box Office.
