A procession travels to Bethlahem, carrying their finest gifts to give to the baby Jesus. The little drummer boy comes along, though he is to poor to bring a present fit for a king. Instead, he plays a song on his drum for the Christ Child. Ezra Jack Keats's vivid, jewel-toned artwork perfectly illustrates this classic holiday carol.

About Ezra Jack Keats

Ezra Jack Keats (1916-1983) is the Caldecott Medal winning author of The Snowy Day, which broke ground in 1962 as one of the first picture books for young children to portray a realistic, multi-cultural urban setting. Since its initial publication, The Snowy Day has come to be regarded as both a children's classic and one of the most important picture books ever written/illustrated. Ezra Jack Keats' legacy lives on in the popularity of his most famous character, Peter-the star of The Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Peter's Chair, A Letter to Amy, Goggles, and others.
