All the cool nappers are there. Some of them have vintage blankets, some have rare first edition pillows. Everyone has on their most stylish pajamas. And the acts at Snoozefest, like Chamomile Rage, and Deep Hiber-Nation, can't be beat. Snuggleford is such a hardcore sleeper, she's the last one to wake up when Snoozefest is over!

Bee & Bird

Submitted by Ms. Cassie!
Bee & Bird is a charming wordless story illustrated by the iconic artist Craig Frazier. With bold colors and graphic lines Frazier tells, or rather shows, us the adventures of a little red bird and a buzzing bee as they journey from Bird’s home in a tree to Bee’s hive. The illustrations use interesting plays on perspective to draw in the viewer. For instance, the first pages are distinct black and gold bands, but once the pages are turned we realize these are the zoomed-in stripes of Bee. This book may be especially enjoyed by little ones who does not always have the patience to listen to a story. The vibrant illustrations will be sure to interest even the most distracted reader.

I Don't Want to Be a Frog

Submitted by Ms. Carol!
I Don't Want To Be A Frog by Dev Petty is a cute story about nature. It is a story about a little frog who is just not happy being a frog. He thinks frogs are wet, slimy, and eat too many bugs. He wants to be something cute and warm. He has many ideas. A cat, a rabbit, a pig, or an owl would be nice. Father Frog explains that he cannot be these things because he is a frog. He does not have long ears like a rabbit. He does not have a curly tail or like to eat garbage like a pig. He does not have wings, he does not look wise, and he cannot turn his head all the way around like an owl. It is not until the big scary wolf appears that Little Frog begins to understand. Wolf tells Little Frog a little secret. He says he is very hungry and he loves to eat cats, rabbits, pigs, and owls. The one thing he never eats is frogs because they are wet and slimy and full of bugs! Little Frog realizes he is what he is, and it is all a part of nature, and he is finally glad that he is a frog.
