Christmas Board Books for the Very Young #3

This is the third and final installment of Christmas Board Books for the very young. I hop you found something to your child’s liking.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

HO! HO! HO!

By Charles Reasoner

 

I loved this rhyming story.  Santa eats too many cookies and gets stuck in the chimney. A little mouse saves the day by pushing Santa down the chimney.  The pictures are in Charles Reasoner’s style – very colorful and with enough activity in each picture to keep a young child’s interest high.

 

Bear Stays Up for Christmas

BEAR STAYS UP FOR CHRISTMAS

By Karma Wilson

Illustrations by Jane Chapman

 

This was a really cute book.  Bear can’t stay awake, so his friends get him up so he doesn’t miss Christmas.  When they go home, Bear stays up and works on surprises for his friends.  When they wake up it is Christmas and Bear and his friends share their surprises.  Bear gets a quilt that is “just his size” and snuggles up and falls fast asleep. This little book explores the joy of giving.

 

Duck & Goose - It's Time for Christmas

DUCK AND GOOSE IT’S TIME FOR CHRISTMAS

By Tad Hills

 

In this delightful Duck and Goose tale, Goose wants do nothing more than catch snowflakes, go sledding, and just have fun playing in the snow.  Goose constantly reminds Duck there is no time for that. “It is time for Christmas.”  With cute little characters, aka Duck and Goose, and pictures that leave plenty of room for a child’s imagination, DUCK AND GOOSE IT’S TIME FOR CHRISTMAS will please the youngest reader through preschool age.

 

The Mitten

THE MITTEN

By Jan Brett

 

THE MITTEN is a Ukrainian folktale adapted and illustrated by Jan Brett. A boy named Nicki wanted white mittens, but his Baba said they would be hard to find in the snow. Nicki lost his mitten and the animals helped him find it in an unconventional way. If you ever read a Jan Brett book, you already know what a fantastic job she does illustrating her books, and this is no exception.

 

Just a Snowy Day

JUST A SNOWY DAY

By Mercer Mayer

 

Mercer Mayer’s JUST A SNOWY DAY is one of my favorites.  Though this isn’t a board book, it is a wonderful storybook and one of the Golden Touch and Feel books.  I remember sitting with my sons reading this and watching them complete the activity found on each page.  Because the activities on each page involve precise dexterity, I would recommend this to children aged 2-4.

 

Happy Reading!

  1. I love children’s books, and sometimes still purchase one, especially for the illustrations. I miss reading stories with my son…he’s 25 now, so it’s been quite a while ago 🙂 but I still love the sweetness of the books. The Mitten looks quite intriguing.

    Blessings for a happy weekend,
