Lin, Grace

A Big Bed for Little Snow

(1) K-3 In this follow-up to Caldecott Honor Book A Big Mooncake for Little Star, an impish boy who lives amidst the clouds gives in to temptation and jumps gleefully on his cornflower-blue bed, sending feathers fluttering down; a page-turn shows a rooftop covered in snow. Lin's illustrations are spare but expressive, with copious, thoughtfully used white space. A wondrous and exuberant story to which boisterous listeners and readers will surely relate.
