What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
After the birth of their daughter, Lucy, the Snyders wanted to create a series that combined their creative talents – writing and illustrating – and promoted early literacy. It was also important to them, as a mixed race family, to feature a family that was a reflection of their own while portraying universal stories that all family can relate to.

Littlebit Book Club was conceived in 2017 by Stephanie and Jed Snyder, a married author/illustrator team that met while teaching at the same school.
Stephanie, a new mom and former language arts teacher, began reading books to her newborn daughter, Lucy. Tired of books about animals and objects, Stephanie grew determined to create a book for babies, toddlers, and the parents who read to them, that would capture their day-to-day experiences while reinforcing language and literacy. Thus, Strolling! A Lucy Littlebit Book was drafted, and Jed completed the illustrations.
Littlebit Book Club books are about the ways babies, toddlers, and young children learn about the world, told from the point-of-view of the pint-sized protagonist, Lucy Littlebit. While the stories are universal for all families to enjoy, the books feature a mixed race family and a main character of color. Strolling! captures Lucy Littlebit’s view from her stroller as she explores her town with Mommy. The book was released in December 2018 and was well-received by littlebits and their caretakers, alike. As the success of Strolling! grew, Littlebit Book Club released the second book in the series, titled Dining! A Lucy Littlebit Book. In Dining! Lucy Littlebit enjoys all of her favorite foods (lovingly prepared by Daddy) in her high chair throughout the day. The third book in the series – Cruising! A Lucy Littlebit Book – was released in March 2020. Cruising! features Lucy Littlebit’s perspectives from her car seat about her favorite (and not-so-favorite) places to visit.
The Snyder family’s interests include bargain shopping, fantasy football, and toddler mischief. They live in New Jersey, where they enjoy strolling, dining, and cruising down the shore.
