This may be the only board book anthology that we own. And we love it! Each story is a two page spread about Christmas, and they all bear Boynton's charming touch. They are told in rhyme, a good rhyme that is meant to be read out loud, and they are super funny. The illustrations are her typical silly animals. I love each piece, from the antsy kid who wakes his parents up while it's still dark, to the Christmas dance with all the farm animals. This book is fun to read any time, and a great story to have on hand at Christmas time. ( )

One of my favorite non-religious Christmas books. I'd be hard-pressed to name my favorite story and I think I have the whole book memorized.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0689825684, Board book)

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 Christmastime, 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. (Baby to preschool) --Marianne Painter
