Christmas at Henry and Mudge's house means cookies and carols and presents, and the whole family gathering for a delicious breakfast (with lots of food falling on the floor for Mudge). It may just be the best Christmas ever -- but Henry's favorite present is the big, lovable dog he's had all along.

A book my 6 yr old loved, a little old for my preschoolers. A solid reading level 2 book, this reader has a good amount of advanced vocabulary words, but not so long that it discourages a new reader. Used it for his read out loud book, which was perfect. It took about 20 mins for him to read and had just enough new vocabulary words to make it challenging. Also, it was a fun and interesting story he could get into. He liked it so much, he asked for more by this author. Great reading book!

I enjoyed this book because I like Christmas. I also enjoyed this book because I liked the part when Annie came over and brought Snowball and Mudge sniffed Annie's earmuffs just to make sure they weren't bunnies.

This is another book out of our Christmas collection, which comes out every year at Christmas time. I always liked the Henry and Mudge series of books, mainly because I like the big dog Mudge.

I enjoy this Henry and Mudge Christmas story because it is a story about family. It is not about the greed of Christmas, of wanting presents, etc., but instead the focus is on time spent with family, baking Christmas cookies, and in the end, when the day is over, Henry and Mudge and his parents go for a wa

Ho hum seasonal selection from the Henry and Mudge series. (And, incidentally, the first I have read.) This easy reader book actually contains a few stories none of which are particularly interesting or exciting. There is nothing wrong with the illustrations but they certainly are not mind-blowing either. Doubtful such lackluster fare would spark the minds of reluctant readers.

Not plot heavy but great for beginning readers. Henry and Midge are staples for us and the Christmas story is darling.

My son and I both thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series and were excited to find out what would happen as we started each one. Because my son was between 5-6 years old (he's an advanced reader) at the time, he easily identified with Henry and loved Mudge because (1) he desperately wanted a dog, and (2) Mudge's goofiness was endearing AND hilarious.

This was our first to read Henry and Mudge books. This was a good 'homey' feeling feel good child's Christmas book. Henry a little boy has a HUGE dog (about the size of him) and apparently they are best friends and do everything together. In this story they make cookies together, Mudge cleans up; they go caroling together, and in the end they celebrate opening gifts and eating dinner with extended family that come to visit. A nice Christmas story to read to your little person. (NOTE there is no ...more

This is a nice book in the "Henry and Mudge" series. Christmas cookies, family and togetherness is the theme of this story, with plenty of joy and fun for all. It's a fairly typical Christmas story and our girls enjoyed it, as they do all the books by this author/illustrator team of Rylant and Stevenson.
