Moo, Baa, Fa La La La La!

PreS-K–A fun twist on the traditional Christmas carol “Deck the Halls.” Any attempt to merely read this delightfully silly board book will be futile. The sparse text, which surrounds a cast of animal friends throughout, floats right off the page, begging to be sung in the tune of carol. Whether the youngest listeners and readers are familiar with “Deck the Halls” or not, they won’t be able to resist the pure joy and lightheartedness of cows, sheep, pigs, and others making rhymes from their natural sounds. Boynton uses similar artistic techniques and a playful palette that longtime readers know and love from her extensive body of work.
VERDICT In the appropriate setting for a Christmas-themed title, the interactive engagement of this title will be undeniable.
