I had the honor of reading Christmas books to children at the Festival of Trees and Lights in Des Moines, Iowa, to kick off this Christmas season. The children selected Peef: The Christmas Bear for me to read. I had never read this story before. What a tender story! The children were so attentive! By the time I reached the last two pages, I was not sure I could finish the story! I was quite teary eyed! I continued to read it to other childrne throughout the evening. We had the bear to hold during the story. Guess what, when you push his belly, he does go PEEF!This is a must read! You will get in the holiday spirit! Read it to others, and I promise you they will say Thank You!
This book is cute. Adorable, if you will. I am a 15-year-old boy who just used the words "cute" and "adorable". That's right. I have strayed from the stereotype of a teenager being "too cool" to think anything's cute. Tom Hegg's tale found a way into my heart. Right from the beginning, you can tell the story's going to be good. With the ryhming lines, colorful illustrations, and warm mood, you can't help but read on. In a nutshell, Santa calls upon his elves to aquire different fabrics, with which Santa makes an adorable (there's that word again!) teddy bear. Peef, the Christmas Bear loved dooing oddjobs around the workshop for the Big Guy, but being among these toys made him long for a child to hold him. Watch your entire family's faces light up as you read this beautiful story to them during December (or even Christmas Eve!). This book has the special kind of magic which makes it last through the generations, so that your grandchildren's grandchildren will feel the same joy that you felt when you read it for the first time. Don't miss out on this masterpiece.
I came across this book during a shopping expedition earlier this month. The cover caught my eye and begged to be previewed. As I stood in the store reading the story, I had tears in my eyes. What a wonderful story sharing and caring.
Santa is up to something! He's asked all of his elves to pick out their favorite fabric and bring it to him. Just what is Santa doing? Why he's making a multi-colored Christmas Bear, that when the final stitch is completed and with a push from Santa's finger, the bear speaks his own name...Peef.Peef is an important bear. He is Santa's chief assistant and dearly loves Santa. But what Peef really wants is to belong to and bring happiness to a special child. That doesn't seem to be Peef's fate until one Christmas Eve when Santa is one toy short. Peef's dream is realized as he is left behind to bring one special child great happiness.This is a wonderful Christmas story! It wraps up the gift of love, sacrifice and the sense of belonging all in one little bear. The illustrations are spectacular and will draw children and adults alike into the story.Armchair Interviews says: This book, first introduced in 1995, is sure to become a classic and treasured by all children everywhere who dream of loving that special bear.
Peef is a wonderful, heartwarming story of love and letting go to fulfill a dream. The illustrations with their vibrant colors help bring the story to life. It has become a Christmas tradition in our house to read Peef on Christmas Eve.
No matter how many times I have read this book I can't get through it without getting all choked-up. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is heartwarming.
Peef is Santa's helper, created from the favorite fabrics of all the elves. Every year he accompanies Santa on his journey and while he loves his life with Santa, he dreams of a life with a child.Peef is one of our favorite Christmas stories. We read it every year. My children never tire of hearing it and my teenage son reads it aloud as part of our Christmas story tradition every Christmas Eve. It is heartwarming and tender and will bring a tear to your eye. The illustrations are gorgeous. You can go to the author's website and purchase an actual stuffed bear. We love our Peef and Christmas isn't Christmas until Peef has joined our family.
I had the little teddy bear and have it to my son. When I saw the book I had to get it. The story is cute but unlike his other books he didn't want to hear it over and over... Maybe I should be glad. Lol
