About The Book

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.

Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over seventy-five children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 85 million of her books have been sold, “mostly to friends and family,” she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced six albums of renegade children’s music. Three of her six albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold) and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has been certified Platinum (over 1 million copies sold). Boynton has also directed twelve music videos of her songs, including the award-winning “One Shoe Blues” starring B.B. King, “Alligator Stroll” starring Josh Turner, and “Tyrannosaurus Funk” (animated) sung by Samuel L. Jackson. She lives in rural New England, and her studio is in a barn with perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.

Raves and Reviews

"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.”
