“A Big Bed For Little Snow” by Grace Lin

This is a gorgeous follow-up to Lin’s 2018 Caldecott Honor book, “A Big Mooncake For Little Star.” Meet Little Snow! When winter comes, Mommy makes a soft bed for Little Snow to sleep on, but each night he cannot resist jumping on the bed, causing tiny feathers to fly down. But are they feathers, or are they feathery snowflakes? A snuggly book to share with your preschooler this winter.

“Peek-a-Who Too?” By Elsa Mroziewicz

A board book that’s a triangle! This follow-up to “Peek-a-Who” is full of hidden animals, each making different sounds. Can you figure out who each one is? Lift the unique shaped flaps to see who peeks out! Babies and toddlers are sure to be delighted by these colorful, noisy creatures.
