" The illustrations were great, my kids loved every detailed page. The story was ok. A nice Christmas story where Otis tries to save the horse and her foal. Nothing we would be eager to pick up again but for looking at the beautiful illustrations. " said.

" Who doesn't love Otis? And this Christmas story is very touching!Read the whole review at: An Otis Christmas " said.

" When I first saw this book as an ARC at the ALA convention in Chicago, it brought tears to my eyes. Otis is one of my favorite picture book characters. Nothing, not even a winter storm, can keep this tractor from his goal, saving the mare and her new foal. My full review: http://librariansquest.blogspot.com/2... " said.

" My favorite Otis book to date. It's almost Christmas and Otis is thankful for his first Christmas gift (a snazzy new horn) and eagerly anticipating the birth of a foal. When there's trouble with the delivery he sets out to retrieve the doctor in a blinding blizzard.This story reminded me of the Little Engine That Could mixed with Lassie. Gouache and pencil artwork. PreK-2. " said.

" I love farm animals, so I love the Otis books, and this one is no exception. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the story is great (it's even a bit of a tearjerker for a children's book). It has more text than your average picture book, so I'd definitely recommend this to children who are a bit older and have a little bit more patience to sit still! " said.

" I can't say enough good things about Loren Long. From the cover, you know it's a "Long" book. His art is iconic and folksy. Otis is modern-day little engine who could (well, tractor). An Otis Christmas is a sweet tale backed by a strong moral, which will please parents and children alike. My three guys loved Otis. And that says all I need to know. " said.

" One of the best picture books we've read of late. Very sweet and good. Emerson and I went to the Otis website (which we recommend) and watched 2 videos: one about the author and one demonstrating the art style. We added 3 Otis books to our library list and also added books illustrated by this artist. " said.

" If I could give this book 10 stars, I would! We love Otis here in our house and this story didn't disappoint. I love how Otis is always wanting to help and he does again in this story. A baby foal is due to be born and Otis hears the farmer talking about trouble and losing both the mother and the baby if the doctor isn't brought in soon. Hearing this, Otis puts a plan into action through a bad snowstorm to help out. He's such a great little tractor! :-) " said.
