Moo, Baa, Fa La La La La! (Board book)
The cast from the bestselling Moo, Baa, La La La! has returned with a silly holiday twist! ‘Tis the season to be jolly, so sing along with caroling sheep, giggling pigs, and dancing cows as they celebrate Christmas with this merry tune.
Deck the halls with cows and holly
while the little sheep sing
BAA, BAA, BAA!
Close the day with something mild.
Maybe go a little wild:
FA LA LA LA LA,
LA LA LA LA!
Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over seventy-five children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 85 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.

"A fun twist on the traditional Christmas carol “Deck the Halls.” Any attempt to merely read this delightfully silly board book will be futile. The sparse text, which surrounds a cast of animal friends throughout, floats right off the page, begging to be sung in the tune of carol. Whether the youngest listeners and readers are familiar with “Deck the Halls” or not, they won’t be able to resist the pure joy and lightheartedness of cows, sheep, pigs, and others making rhymes from their natural sounds. Boynton uses similar artistic techniques and a playful palette that longtime readers know and love from her extensive body of work. VERDICT In the appropriate setting for a Christmas-themed title, the interactive engagement of this title will be undeniable."
