Fun Christmas book with beautiful illustrations Nov. 10 2010
By K the runner - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book begins with a girl writing a letter to Santa. She hasn't finished the letter so we don't see what she's asked for. A few pages later she sees the gifts by the Christmas tree; one small, one medium and one large. When she opens the gifts the small one contains a real cat, the medium one contains a real dog, and the large box houses a real pony. Then we see her play with her new friends in the snow; sledding, making snow angels and snowmen, having a snow ball fight and then curling up by the fire place at the end of the day. The only words in this story are in the letters the girl writes to Santa at the beginning and the end of the book. The illustrations are beautiful and funny at the same time. Great book!

Delightful! - A Very Special Christmas Wish Comes True April 9 2011
By Brimful Curiosities - Published on
Format: Hardcover
In this nearly wordless picture book, a little girl named Sammy writes Santa a letter. Christmas morning arrives and she finds three wrapped gifts (one small, one medium and one large) under the tree. The gifts contain three living animals ... a cat, a dog and a miniature horse! Lonely no more, Sammy and her new animal friends spend their winter days making snow angels, throwing snowballs, building snow creatures, sledding, and baking cookies.

Donovan's book is a fun-filled, imaginative read about a very special Christmas wish that comes true. The adorable scenarios depicted in the painted illustrations are pure fun and kids will delight in the whimsy. For instance, all the animals sleep nestled together under the covers in the little girl's bed. And, my kids loved the cookie baking scene where the horse makes horseshoe-shaped cookies while the cat cuts out fish shapes. For toddlers, the book provides an opportunity to discuss sizes and because it is wordless, they can make up their own story to accompany the pictures. The author based the animals in the book on her own pets, a Siamese cat named Maylee, a Chesapeake Bay retriever named Grizzly and a miniature horse named Fern.

Suitable for children ages 4-10 Jan. 24 2011
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"Small Medium & Large" is an imaginative picture book about a girl's wish list letter for Santa. Charming illustrations in sequence tell much of the action of the story. When the girl opens her presents on Christmas, she finds living surprises in boxes that are small, medium and large. The first is a kitty, the second is a dog, and the third is a miniature pony! All the animals play in the snow with the girl, and they help her make small, medium and large snowmen as well. Sammy is very happy with her small, medium and large gifts, and writes Santa a special thank you letter, also requesting a new bone, some carrots and a toy mouse for next year. The unusual thing about "Small Medium & Large" is the entire story is told in pictures, except for the letters to Santa. "Small Medium & Large" is suitable for children ages 4-10, allowing and encouraging them to create their own narrative for the wonderful tale unfolding in the pictures.

Fabulous illustrations! Dec 22 2010

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Somehow I missed the fact that this is a wordless picture book, but it's perfect for my classroom. The illustrations are detailed and beautiful! Certainly the pictures tell the story, but it will be fun to have my students tell it too!

I teach preschool and ran across this book last year. I had to buy it so I didn't have to worry about getting it from the library each year at Christmas time. It is a great wordless picture book that clearly tells the story and has fun details. Can't go wrong with this one!
