KIRKUS REVIEW

A little deer is loved.

A little reindeer is fawned upon in this board book. Foam antlers covered in fabric rest atop the book in such a way that they rest atop the head of the young deer at the turn of each page. The rhyming text (“You twinkle, glow, and shine so bright. / You embrace each day with such delight”) heaps praise upon the little bovid and ends with declarations of love and wishes for a “Merry Christmas.” The antlers are sturdily constructed and stand up to the mighty pull of little hands, though they don’t make the actual book any cuddlier than an ordinary board book. The illustrations are simply colored with a primary palette and “stitched” outlines that evoke felt dolls. The text itself is set in a wide, loopy “hand-written” typeface in white against darker backgrounds. This board book is by no means an essential Christmas read, but it will help to satiate the holiday frenzy well enough.

A pleasant addition to the Christmas shelf. (Board book. 1-2)
