Jacqueline Woodson to Read PECAN PIE BABY via Facebook Live (5/1)
Rooster and Kwame present Picture Book Week with Jacqueline Woodson, who will read her picture book, PECAN PIE BABY (Puffin) via Facebook Live on Friday, May 1, at 11:15am (ET).
In PECAN PIE BABY, written by National Book Award-winning author Jacqueline Woodson and illustrated by Caldecott Award-winning illustrator Sophie Blackall, all anyone wants to talk about with Mama is the new “ding-dang baby” that’s on the way, and Gia is getting sick of it! If her new sibling is already such a big deal, what’s going to happen to Gia’s nice, cozy life with Mama once the baby is born?
