136 thought on “The Little Drummer Boy

  1. Simple book Pictures to go with the words of the song with the same title The art is nice Great for a 2 3 year old.


  2. Ezra Jack Keats beautiful interpretation of this, my second least favorite Christmas song, caused me to reconsider the revulsion I usually feel towards the wee lad and his pa rum pa rum pums Indeed, Mr Keats achieved a remarkable artistic feat by taking something displeasing and making it lovely to my Scrooge y heart It s a Christmas miracle


  3. Good illustrations I read the text minus the drum noises , as naturally as possible, then sing the whole thing at the end I usually very much dislike the radio versions of the song, but this little book brings a different feeling about it It may very well redeem the carol for me ___________I ve actually had to read this a whole bunch of times this Christmas, but I m only going to mark it once.


  4. Books taken from songs confuse me Are you supposed to read them or sing them Especially when then have an ever repeating theme, such as pa rum pum pum pum Read that out loud just sounds silly to me But what s your take It seems to be really popular to take songs and make them into children s books as I ve come across ever so many I love Ezra Jack Keats s illustrations which is why I gave this a three Once I figure out my dilemma, I might come back and give this a four star rating Ages 3 7 christ [...]


  5. A presentation of the book, in video with the song The stunning collage art is featured as the song is sung accompanied by a guitar, and of course, a drum It is one of my favorite Christmas songs, it is a treat to have it with these images.


  6. Gorgeous, vibrant, and evocative, from the despair of the giftless drummer boy to the joy of the ox and lamb keeping time.


  7. Summary The little drummer boyWhy I Read This It was on the books to read to your kids before kindergarten list.Review I liked it The words are the song And the illustrations are good.







  8. His illustrations are gorgeous, as usual, but I don t like that baby Jesus is still in the manger when the wise men came two years after his birth I know, it s nit picking, but I can t help it.




  9. You re probably already familiar with the text here the lyrics of Little Drummer Boy are faithfully reproduced, pah rum pah pum pums included Your enjoyment of the book depends heavily on whether you like the Christmas carol in question.If you do, I think you re in for a treat Ezra Jack Keats art is always lovely to look at, but his rendering of the Magis visit to the Christ child is just stunning I especially appreciate that he takes pains to depict the figures as they might really have looked [...]


  10. Ezra Jack Keats, best known for the Caldecott Medal winning THE SNOWY DAY, captures the beautiful simplicity of The Little Drummer Boy in this Christmas find When things you love come together magic can be created Keats has long been a favorite author of mine and The Little Drummer Boy is high on my list of favorite carols Upon reflection, it is for similar reasons They both capture things in a simple, yet extraordinary way THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY flows with the traditional song to show a young b [...]


  11. This is a small hard back picture book and ironically not one of the authors most well known However, that does not stop the book from being colorful and imaginative The book stays true to form of the traditional Christmas song Each page gives homage to a line from the song, which is posted in its entirety on the last two pages.The author illustrator made each page come alive and yet also gives the feel of the original song through the character s emotions I love this author s books and it is to [...]


  12. One of my girls favorite reads lately is Over in the Meadow where I sing it instead of reading it as we turn the pages We found this one to be another from Ezra Jack Keats that has the same response I have a feeling this will be requested much before the year is out and possibly year round beyond the Christmas and nativity season This was part of our Memoria Press Junior Kindergarten reading list and once again their list is fabulous


  13. GLE 2.9, Kprimary elementary Genre Historical Fiction This story is about a group traveling to Bethleham in biblical times Each member of the group has a gift to give to Baby Jesus, a fine gift All except for the little drummer boy He is too poor to bring a gift, so instead he decides to play a song on his drum It is a magical song and ends up being the best gift of them all The story is cute, while it has some religious connotation it is not overly religious It is a good story about giving a pr [...]


  14. I remember having this book growing up that we would bring out at Christmas with the other Christmas books It is the entire song of The Little Drummer Boy with Keats great illustrations In the back is the music for the song which my mom converted for my Tap a Tune piano the old blue one with the full color coded octave and I remember playing it on my first baby keyboard It has always been one of my favorite Christmas songs, probably in part due to this book.


  15. My son wants to learn to play the drum and, this Advent, has become fascinated with the Little Drummer Boy song So when I saw that Ezra Jack Keats had made a picture book of the song, of course I checked it out It was a hit I ve only been asked to read it once, but he has sat and looked through it over and over The pictures are very familiar as being by Keats, and it s a pretty traditional adaptation of the song.


  16. The Little Drummer Boy is a picture book to the song The Little Drummer Boy The book has beautiful pictures to illustrate the song.Activities Discuss the vocabulary in the story go over the characters in the story learn to make shadows practicing how to whistle retell the story with flannel boards pieces or as a play pick a class favorite song and turn it into a class book.


  17. This is my 3 year old s favorite Christmas carol I have to sing this book to him These illustrations were soft and nice but not my favorite I obviously don t have the best taste in art, I am far to picky and not cultured when it comes to artwork like this A good depiction of the song overall.


  18. I liked this book because it tells the words to Little Drummer Boy The last page actually has the sheet music for the musical people out there This is a charming story about the little drummer boy playing his drum loudly for baby Jesus He feels sad in part of the story because he doesn t feel like his gift could compare to the three wise men.


  19. I saw this book at the library last week a few weeks too late to enjoy during Christmas I ve never really liked the song by the same name, but Keats s spare illustrations and beautiful style have finally endeared me to the familiar words I d like to own this one for the Christmas collection.


  20. The text of this picture book comes word for word from the popular Christmas tune complete with the insertion of pa rum pum pum pum , giving it a festive feel, though the illustrations feel dated and as if they were pulled from an illustrated hymnal, not from Ezra Jack Keats.


  21. I love this book I think the illustrations that accompany the familiar Christmas carol s text are beautiful Warning I can t read it without singing it Ha Upon hearing the song on the radio, one of my boys exclaimed, Wow, they sing it way better than you do


  22. The typically wonderful pictures of Ezra Jack Keats make this illustrated interpretation of the famous Christmas song a true joy to experience Written music for the song is included in the back of the book, but I actually found it refreshing to read the lyrics as a story, and not a tune.


  23. This book has charming illustrations which my 2 year old barely understands or recognizes There are only three pages where he points out familiar things in the picture Also he prefers that I sing this book to him rather than read it, which can be tiring.
