Hey everyone!

A massive thank you to @KaleidoscopicBT and @Townhouse_books for allowing me to be a part of the tour.

Book Summary:

 Santa is getting ready for Christmas Eve, but he’s lost his list of jobs to do! This large format board book tells a fun rhyming tale of Santa who is getting ready to deliver presents around the world. Toddlers will love the large touch and feels, especially his curly beard and velvet hat.

  • Featuring a black Santa, a much-needed figure in children’s Christmas book publishing
  • A large format cased board book
  • Lots of touch and feel areas for extra sensory touches
  • Fun rhyming text

My Review:

This was a fun little Christmas story that Evelyn and I really enjoyed reading together. It’s perfect for this time of the year! Evelyn actually read this entire book to me herself which made the experience even more special, and will definitely be one that we continue to read regularly right through to Christmas.

Evelyn’s Thoughts:

I enjoyed this book. I liked being able to feel parts of the book, and my favourite part was Santa in his underpants trimming his beard because it made me laugh. Santa was silly for always forgetting his snacks. I liked that the elves were doing things for Santa too.

*Thank you to Kaleidoscopic for our copy of the book, in exchange for an honest review*
