Snowy Day Yarn Bomb by Hi, Jenny Brown – a Real Treat for Ezra Jack Keats Fans!
Books get adapted for film all the time but it’s not often that they get adapted for yarn bombs!
Hi, Jenny Brown – crochet pattern designer, charity crocheter, and yarnbomber – has changed all that with her amazing yarn bomb of the children’s classic, The Snow Day by Ezra Jack Keats. Did you read that when you were a kid? I sure did!
If you don’t know, The Snowy Day is an award-winning picture book written and illustrated by American Ezra Jack Keats in 1962.
It’s about a boy named Peter who explores his neighborhood after the first snowfall of the season.
According to Wikipedia, “the inspiration for Peter’s character came from a Life magazine photo article from 1940, and Keats’ desire to have minority children of New York as central characters in his stories.”
