Artist of the Month

The artist of the month for February is Ezra Jack Keats (1916-1983)

Keats was one of the most important children’s authors and illustrators of the 20th century. He is known best for introducing multiculturalism in children’s literature and was one of the first children’s authors to include an urban setting for his stories.

In honor of Ezra Jack Keats we will read The Snowy Day, make pet snowballs, and Fabulous Paper Hats in the next weeks to come!
