This is a really fun book , especially for kids in the 3-6 range (maybe even age 2 if they have a longer attention span). I like to read a Christmas story to my two boys every night before bedtime in December, and sometimes it comes in handy to have some shorter stories to read (although it was hard to convince them to stop after just one or two stories!). My boys loved the stories, all related to Christmas, giving, and sharing. We're glad to have added this book to our collection!

My two year-old granddaughter loves this book! It's the first one she wants me to read to her when we sit down for our before nap or before bedtime reading time. I remember reading all the adventures of Lowly Worm, Huckle Cat,etc. to my kids when they were little and it's fun to share them again with their kids. I highly recommend this book!

When we got this book for review I was really excited because I remember Richard Scarry books from when I was a kid. I remember being entranced at this entire town he created. Each page is like several because there are little pictures scattered around with a few sentences for each one. In this book it has it's own little mini stories in it so you can get away with reading only a few pages at a time. And trust me, it's a LONG book! I know I'm not really up to reading the whole thing in a sitting.
My kids seem to like it and like seeing all the funny little animals doing their thing. It doesn't seem to be on their favorites list though. And they tend to grow a bit bored. Maybe they aren't going to be the Richard Scarry fan I was as a kid. Or maybe the age is just wrong. Or maybe it's because it's more focused on Christmas. It's hard to say. But it's a fun one to pull down for the holiday's and enjoy a few pages a night.
I'm giving this one 3/5 stars because of my kids reactions, but if you like Richard Scarry then you'll like this one.

Although I really enjoyed Shephards short stories about Christmas in "In God We Trust All Others Pay Cash" and "Twas the Night Before Christmas" Scarry's childrens book here is probably one of the best christmas books ever. It's true. He doesn't disappoint. The art is exceptional, as usual, and the story is one that captivates the imagination of our little people. A great pre-stocking stuffer. Happy Holidays.

I ordered more than 10 books by Richard Scarry for my two-year old son and this Christmas book is one of his all-time favorite. He loves the pictures and reads through it every day since he had this book. He learns a lot from it and has a lot of fun from reading it. And I am sure he will continue to learn and have fun from reading this book in the next couple of years. A Good buy.

This is definitely the scariest Christmas book ever. It has a bear in it and bears are pretty scarry. I don't know who Richard is, maybe that is the bear's name...they don't really make that clear, but anytime you get bears close to reindeers it can't be good!! I will let you read it to find out what happens.

This is a wonderful Christmas book for preschoolers. Classic Scarry illustrations, sweet stories and even a fun game and craft. This is one of our favorite Christmas books.

This has been the favourite book to read this Christmas. Full of lovely gentle stories and gorgeous illustrations. It really put across the message of kindness and sharing and helping eachother perfectly. My 2 year old has been obsessed with reading the whole book every single night since we got it a few weeks before Christmas. I am so happy we bought it and will look forward to reading it again and again every year
