A delightful Christmas picture book filled with hilarious characters and dynamic art from the one and only Sandra Boynton!

What’s that noise filling the room?
From this rousing beginning unfolds Christmas Parade, a merry picture book from Sandra Boynton.
As the dynamic parade of forty-six spiffy and intent animal musicians marches by, young readers will see animals and their instruments in turn: chickens with bassoons, ducks with trombones, mice with piccolos, cow saxophonists, a tiny bird with a large tuba, a glockenspiel pig, even a trumpet-playing Santa rhino—all underscored by marching snares (fifteen hippos, one cat) and one booming bass drum (an intrepid elephant).
Written with the irresistible rhythm of a lively marching band and illustrated by the author with those signature Boynton characters, Christmas Parade is a superb present for young children and families everywhere. Biddy BOOM.

About the Author

Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over sixty children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 70 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.

The kids (and Mommy) are huge Boynton fans! This was excellent and thrilled from ages 1-5. They loved hearing the different intruments as the parade went by, and I pretty much have to read it at bedtime everynight! I have a ton of Boynton books around the house, but this was the first nookbook. It will not be our last!

We love to read and listen to this book. The music that goes along with the author's soothing voice brings you right along to the parade.

I am so glad that Sandra made this intentionally as an ebook. The sound and colors are great on the Nook Tablet! When Sandra Boynton narrates her own stories they can come across as a little flat and somewhat monotone. But, not with this book. Christmas Parade is an excellent ebook. The illustrations are done in the usual fun style and the music enhances the narration. It is one of my daughter's favorite books. We read it daily. Highly recommended for younger children and parents.

My family loves Sandra Boynton's board books and I was so excited to get this ebook and read it with my daughter. Unfortunately, the narration is flat and much too slow. The read to me option on my Nook Kids app for my iPad reads each page but requires you to swipe and turn each page rather than read the whole book to you. It would be nice to have that auto play mode as an option. My daughter gets excited to see the story unfold before her very eyes but between the slow, flat narration and the need to flip each page, I can tell this story will not hold her interest or entertain her. I wish I could get my $6.99 back to spend on a Boyton book instead.

My boys are 2 and 3 and they loved this book this Christmas season. The author reads the book and the boys loved all the musical sounds that accompanied the story. I must say I enjoyed it as much as they did as I do all Sandra Boyton books!
