Congratulations to these enthusiastic young writers who submitted their creative stories inspired by Ezra Jack Keats' The Snowy Day. Each wins a $25 gift certificate to Crow Bookshop in Burlington. We loved reading about your cool adventures. We've shared an excerpt from one of the winning stories below.

"The snow is piling up. Jamie is desperate to go outside but her mom will not let her until she's done reading, which is not very convenient because she's dying to go outside in the snow. The book she's reading is called The Snowy Day. When she hears the beep of the timer, the reading is done. When she's outside, she realizes that she forgot to put on her snow pants, jacket and hat. The eagerness got the best of her. After putting on her warm clothes — snow pants, mittens, hat and a neck warmer just in case — she opens the door and before her eyes is a winter wonderland..."
