A book of love and filled with wisdom! Oct 10, 2005
It's been a year since PEEF left Santa Claus and became the beloved companion to a little boy. It's time for Santa Claus to make his rounds visiting all the children on Christmas Eve. He misses the little bear he made with his own hands from the fabric given to him by the elves. Santa Claus misses him so much that he saves PEEF's house for the last visit on Christmas Eve.
There, under the covers, snuggled up next to the little boy is PEEF. Santa Claus is so happy. But what has happened? Something is different. PEEF has changed! He's become faded, has some rips and tears and can no longer say his name.
Santa wants to help PEEF become like new again. But PEEF explains that he is the way he is because he is loved. PEEF shares all of his adventures with Santa who then understands. PEEF is who he is and is where he should be and that is what is important.
A Silent Night for PEEF is a touching story filled with love and wisdom. The illustrations are colorful, bold and beautiful. They will captivate children and adults alike.
Armchair Interviews says: A Silent Night for PEEF is a wonderful gift for that special child in your life. It is a book that children will keep and read again and again.
Peef Is Tops With Little Kids Feb 17, 2000
My boys (4 and 6) received Peef bears and the original Peef Christmas book last year. Since then, Peef has attended everything from a Fourth of July party to Thanksgiving dinner. Both bears are a little worn with love now. So the boys loved hearing more about Peefs just like theirs -- just a little worn and a lot loved. The outdoor/real life picture were more to their liking, because their Peefs had been outside and been played with like the Peef in Silent Night. They were glad to know that Santa may come to see their Peefs again, too. If you're looking for something that's bound to tickle any little one's fancy at any time of the year -- get them a Peef bear and this book!
A sweet child's book with a deeper meaning Sep 23, 1999
I'll be honest--I buy books for my child that I like--and I REALLY like this book. Santa visits Peef, a toy he handmade the previous year, only to find Peef dirty and faded. Santa wants to "fix" Peef, but it turns out that Peef is quite happy the way that he is--worn by love and full of memories. Even if your family does not believe in Santa Claus, this sweet book will appeal to you.
My storytime group loved this book! Dec 8, 1998
If you've been wondering what happened to Peef since Santa found a home for him, this book will bring you up to date. He has had some big adventures and is a little worse for the wear but he is very happy with his life. This teaches a good lesson for children: You are okay just the way you are; you don't need to look like what others may consider ideal. The lesson here for parents is that you need to let go and let kids be themselves. This second Peef book is shorter than the first one and my preschoolers love it.
Great ryming! Oct 14, 1998
It wasn't as good as the original Peefbook but I liked it! It told kids who maby had peefed their bears so they wouldn't peef again, that it was okay if they still loved them!
