About this item


About the Book

The popular cartoonist tells seven short Christmas stories in a tabbed book format. Leading off with a winsome story about an entertaining reindeer named Bob, this humorous holiday fare is for readers of all ages. Full color.

Book Synopsis

The winsome tale of Bob opens this board book of seven Boynton Christmas stories. Using the delightful tabs, little children can choose the story they want to hear.

Stories include: Bob * Merry Christmas Party * The Star * A Big Box * Eight Wishes * Wake Up! * Christmas Lullaby
Guided by the colorful picture tabs, every perfectly silly selection is just right for snuggling by, all December long. And highly approved by Bob.

I have a tiny reindeer.
He says his name is Bob.
He like to entertain me.
He says it is his job.

Review Quotes

"Boynton's cartoon characters-reindeer, pigs, ducks, cows, and hippos-are big-eyed, round-tummied, and energetic. Each of these seven brief "stories" occurs in its entirety on a double-page spread and is told in rhyme; the final selection is a lullaby, complete with music. Bright artwork, appealingly goofy text, and subjects of intrinsic interest (finding a box big enough to wrap a hippo in, a reindeer tinier than a teacup) add up to a winning, fun-filled formula."-- "School Library Journal"

"'Tis the season to be silly, particularly when Boynton's at the helm. A tiny reindeer named Bob kicks off this set of seven merry poems (and, in fact, sneaks into the other six). The verse is cheery ('The turkey is loud./ The donkey is, too./ The rooster joins in, so why shouldn't you?'), the presentation crisp, and the board book packs an added bonus: as in Snoozers, a tabbed index allows little fingers to select a favorite tale in a trice. But it's Boynton's signature cartoons, in her expert balance of tender and goofy, that will draw the crowds."-- "Publishers Weekly"
