Customer Reviews

I laughed so hard the first time I read it I was in tears.
S. Elkins
You will find yourself singing the Alan Katz versions of the songs more than the real versions.
Rebekah A Rau
It's a great fill in when you have a minute and the humor is understood by most.

I bought this book for my kids but the adults in the family are still passing it around. This is a book that will be loved by ALL. I laughed so hard the first time I read it I was in tears. It takes all of the Christmas songs we know and love and makes them into spoofs about the holidays we can all relate to told from the view point of the kids. From going to the mall to hanging the lights to caroling theres something in this book for everyone!

A must have for anyones holiday collection!!!

We have every one of Alan Katz's "silly dilly" song books, and we have worn them out. He gave life to lots of old stand-by songs, and now he's done the same to Christmas. I can't tell you the number of nights I've laid in bed with my son singing Katz's adorable, and hysterical new lyrics. If you're not a "silly-dilly" devotee yet, it's never too late to start. Don't have kids without it!

This book met all of my expectations and then some. My boys are both singers and we all read through this together. Our favorite - "At the Mall" sang to the tune of "Deck the Halls" If you like to laugh and sing or one or the other, buy this book!

I'd suggest adding a CD with a tune so old parents can remember the melody...other than that...great. His favorite is Something in My Brother's Underpants. Of course, he's 5, so why wouldn't a song about stinky diapers be his favorite?

The songs are funny and engaging and a wonderful way to get children reading fluently. You'll have fun singing the songs along with your children and you'll be amazed at how well they can read the words after learning the songs. Who knew teaching reading to your own child would be so fun and easy?!

Where did they hide my Presents was very well received by my third graders this season. It's a great fill in when you have a minute and the humor is understood by most. Illustrations go well with the verses, and they are fairly easy to read without too much prior practice.

My girls think these songs are hysterical, and they love singing them. And, as with all books illustrated by David Catrow, they also enjoy just sitting and looking at the pictures. Very fun book!

I have about 10 Alan Katz books - these are just hilarious songs! "Where Did They Hide My Presents?" is probably my favorite one, just because I love Christmas songs. But all of his sing-along books are great! I read/sing them to my students at school during story time, and the kids just love them. When the students get to pick a book to read, these books are usually the first to get picked!

A few of the tunes are unfamiliar to me (may be a generational thing), but with the internet now, it is super easy to google the name of the song and learn the tune quickly. Often times it is just a matter of reminding myself how the whole song goes. "Where Did They Hide My Presents?" is probably the easiest to sing of the Alan Katz sing-along series.

Buy this book! Seriously! You will find yourself singing the Alan Katz versions of the songs more than the real versions. They are a great treat!
