It’s Christmas! (I Can Read Book 3)
Reviewed by Evan Weldon (age 6) for Reader Views (8/08)
“It’s Christmas!” by Jack Prelutsky is a collection of twelve funny poems about Christmas. My favorite poem was “My Christmas Pup” which is about a girl who got a very cute puppy for Christmas. I thought it was very funny that the puppy made a puddle and she had to wipe it up. I also really like the poem “Aunt Flo” which is about a kid who has gotten underwear for three years in a row. How sad (and funny)! I also really liked “Our Christmas Tree” which is about a girl and her dad who go out to cut down a Christmas tree. When they finally found a tree and chopped it down, it knocked the dad over and he “cut his nose and his thumb, sprained his shoulder, banged an elbow, scraped a knee.” I could read the poems all by myself, and I laughed when I read them.
The illustrations were very good. They were silly. My little three-year-old brother liked counting all the Santas.
“It’s Christmas!” by Jack Prelutsky would make a good Christmas present.
