Join award-winning and bestselling author-illustrator Grace Lin for the launch of her newest picture book, A Big Bed for Little Snow!
When it was quiet, Little Snow grinned and then jumped, jumped, jumped!
Little Snow loves the new big, soft bed Mommy made him for the long, cold winter nights. But Mommy says this bed is for sleeping, not jumping! What happens when he can't resist jump, jump, jumping on his new fluffy, bouncy bed?
A companion to the Caldecott Honor book A Big Mooncake for Little Star, A BIG BED FOR LITTLE SNOW is a tender picture book introducing readers to their first snow. Using striking illustrations and heartwarming moments, Lin once again has crafted the perfect bedtime story for young children. This cozy book has been called “a sweet and clever myth” by Kirkus Reviews and is sure to dazzle readers and become a modern bedtime classic. Like The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, this book teaches children about literary allusions and how folktales can tell the original stories of how the world works.
