We've met Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and more recently, Olive, the Other Reindeer... but wait! Here comes Bob -- a tiny, silly reindeer created by the beloved Sandra Boynton.

Bob can be quite an entertaining companion around Christmas time, but there seems to be some question about his existence: My sister won't believe in / my tiny reindeer friend / she says there's no such reindeer / but why would Bob pretend?

Bob introduces us to seven delightful holiday stories, sharing good company with a fine menagerie of daffy creatures including some very merry dairy cows, anxious bears, long-eared hounds, and a rather doubtful hippo who would just as soon not receive a bikini from Santa.

These endearing animals wistfully share their dreams for a merry Christmas as they wish and wait for Santa, occasionally letting loose with a few sweet, funny songs.

Boynton has created another classic with these hilarious, touching holiday tales.

Why Our Experts Love It

We love these books because they make everyday things like going to bed, fun, easy to understand and sometimes, they even work. :)

You'll be sure to get a kick out of the rhythms, which is also our favorite thing about any of Boynton's books.

  • Reading with your child is a great way to spend quality time. Reading is an important activity to foster language skills and help your child learn new information. Long before a child can speak, an infant is learning the melodies and sounds of language.
  • They are learning to understand words and pair pictures of objects with the name of the object. In addition to language skills, reading with your child helps improve their attention and builds curiosity. We want children of all ages to hear adult, complex sentences so alternate reading a book as you typically would (reading all the written words) with the tips described below.
  • 2-3 year olds – read the story as written but ask questions along the way to ensure that your child understands what is happening in the story.  This also allows them to be active “readers”
  • 3-4 year olds – ask your child to tell you about the pictures/predict the story first.  Then read the words on the page. This is a great way to help foster their story-telling abilities.
  • 4-5 year olds at this age children begin to gain interest in the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make. Point to some of the words as you read to support this interest. At the end of a book, you and your child can make up a different ending OR try and add to the story.
