Hooray! One of Our Favorite Childrens Books Is Getting Its Own Stamp Series
US Postal Service

A young boy named Peter has the best day ever playing in the snow. So goes the simple but lovely plot of Ezra Jack Keats' wildly popular 1962 children's book, The Snowy Day.

It was one of our go-tos as kids, but we kind of forgot about it as adults. That is, until today, when we were overcome with nostalgia at the announcement that the book is getting its own U.S. Postal Service Forever stamp series. The 20-stamp book features four scenes of Peter (the first black protagonist in an American children's book) frolicking in the snow and will be available for $10 on October 4.

This is just the push we needed to actually send out handwritten holiday cards this year.
