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.

The donkey is, too./ The rooster joins in, so why shouldn't you?""), the presentation crisp, and the board book packs an added bonus: as in Snoozers, a tabbed index allows little fingers to select a favorite tale in a trice.

“First comes the elephant marching along/ with a boom-biddy boom-biddy steady and strong,” writes the author as a serious-looking pachyderm in a green marching band uniform leads the charge.
