Watermark is excited to be hosting best-selling author and illustrator Jan Brett on her Winter Wonderland Tour for her Winter Collection of The Snowy Nap, The Hat, Cozy, and The Three Snow Bears. You can purchase all four books separately on their own or as a collection with Jan Brett's Winter Collection Box Set! Watermark will have plenty of books to purchase to accommodate everyone at the event. If you purchase your books ahead of time, please keep a copy of the receipt, or email confirmation if ordered online. Jan Brett will be at the Advanced Learning Library on Thursday, December 7th at 10 a.m.
Jan Brett's Winter collection follows Hedgie's adventure trying to stay awake to see the wonders of winter and entertaining all of his animal friends. Before the book signing Jan Brett will do a 20-30 minute drawing demonstration related to her bestselling picture book Cozy and talk about her research trip to Alaska to see the musk oxen which will start at 10 a.m. It will be a very fun and informative event for young readers. The Snowy Nap, The Hat, Cozy, and The Three Bears, and the full Winter Collection Box Set, which includes all four, will be available for purchase before, during, and after the event. The first 100 families in line will receive a free signed Jan Brett Poster. Jan will do her very best to sign all the books when time permits. The number she can sign per family depends on how many people come to the signing. If time does not permit her to sign every book, special signed bookplates featuring her artwork will be on hand for the extra books. Jan Brett's tour bus will be parked at the Advanced Learning Library by the start of the event. It is wrapped in artwork from her books. Your family is welcome to take a photograph next to the bus. Hedgie, Jan's favorite friend from The Mitten and The Hat, will be visiting the library as well. We welcome you to bring the kids to have a photo taken with Hedgie. You can RSVP for this event on Eventbrite using the button below! We hope to see you there and let your friends and family know about this fun event!
About the books:
Jan Brett’s bestselling wintry picture books The Snowy Nap, The Hat, Cozy, and The Three Snow Bears make up this collection that will warm young hearts throughout the winter.
The Snowy Nap: A chill is in the air, and as Hedgie trundles around the farm all his friends tell him of the winter-time fun he will miss as he hibernates: Icicles decorating the chicken coop! Lisa making snowmen! The pond turned to slippery ice!
The Hat: When Lisa's woolen stocking flies off the clothesline, Hedgie finds it and pokes his nose in. He tries to pull it out, but the stocking gets stuck on his prickles -- and the fun begins.
Cozy: Cozy is the softest musk ox in Alaska, with the warmest fur you have ever felt. When a storm hits while he's separated from his family, he starts to feel lonely—but not for long. As the snow piles up, animals start to notice just how warm and cozy Cozy really is! One mama lemming has a bright idea . . . maybe the best place to spend the winter is under Cozy's fur!
The Three Snow Bears: When Aloo-ki glances up from fishing and sees her sled dogs floating off on an ice floe, she races after them. She comes upon an igloo with no one home and goes inside.
All of these wonderful books can also be purchased in one whole collection, Jan Brett's Winter Collection Box Set.
This collection of Jan Brett’s most beloved wintry stories makes the perfect gift for the holidays and beyond.
From Hedgie’s adventures trying to stay awake to see the wonders of winter and entertaining all of his animal friends with a stocking on his head, to Cozy the musk ox keeping a sometimes boisterous group of animals warm during the Alaskan winter, and three of the furriest bears with the coziest house you’ve ever seen, Jan Brett’s favorite characters are sure to entertain during any weather.
