The familiar farmyard gang celebrates Christmas Eve in Boynton’s latest holiday-themed board book (Christmas Parade, rev. 11/20; Boo! Baa, La La La!, rev. 9/21). After “deck[ing] the halls with cows and holly,” singing, trimming the tree, and making merry (“All the happy pigs go HA HA HA!”), it’s time to settle down and go to bed. Chickens and other animal friends offer quiet sounds…until (classic Boynton) a rowdy bunch goes “a little wild.” Excited little ones will love the implicit invitation.

From the November/December 2022 issue of The Horn Book Magazine.
