Bestselling author Emily Winfield Martin’s latest book, The Littlest Family’s Big Day, follows a little bear family (and their tiny adopted fox) as they explore their new home in the woods. The family moves into their house in a tree trunk and then sets out to explore their surroundings. Who will they encounter along the way? They meet many friends – rabbits, mice, squirrels, raccoons and more – and encounter a lush environment. The beauty of nature shines through with Winfield’s gorgeous, decorative illustrations. Butterfly fairies dance in the wind; little bear’s reflection ripples in the river; strawberries are ripe for picking; and plushy, orange toadstools provide shelter from the rain. The family loses their way in the woods, only to be directed home by a generous owl. A stunning double gatefold illustrates how friends welcome the little family home.
Young readers will delight in this charming story, which is scripted with gentle cursive text and filled with serene animals. Above all, Martin’s illustrations are truly a delight and children and their parents will enjoy poring over the beauty of the woodland setting.
