Step into the Story: The Snowy Day and Feast for Ten | 10:30am–1:00pm
The Snowy Day, written and illustrated by Ezra Jack Keats, was one of the first children’s books in the 20th century to feature an African American child as the main character. Join the St. Louis Black Authors of Children’s Literature Initiative to celebrate Peter, dressed in his cuddly red snow suit, and dive into a playful “snowy day” of your own at the Museum. In addition, get ready for a feast like the family in Feast for Ten. Families will enjoy listening to stories, making snowballs and snowflakes, playing in the snow, setting tables for meals, sharing recipes, and meeting local authors!
