illustrated by Tom Knight and Tom Knight

From the creator of the Honest Toddler blog, The Big Bed is a humorous picture book about a girl who doesn't want to sleep in her little bed, so she presents her dad with his own bed-a camping cot!-in order to move herself into her parents' big bed in his place. A twist on the classic parental struggle of not letting kids sleep in their bed, this book features an African-American family, and was written by an African-American author.

Bunmi Laditan is the creator of the popular blog Honest Toddler. She is also the author of humorous parenting books for adults: The Honest Toddler: A Child's Guide to Parenting and The Honest Toddler: How to be a Better Parental Servant . She lives with her family in Canada. thehonesttoddler.com
