Review of "Jolly Old Santa Claus"

Review of
Jolly Old Santa Claus ISBN 0824940806

Five out of five stars
 This is one of the best books about Santa Claus ever produced. It is a reprint of a classic work about the jolly old gent that has been vastly improved by the inclusion of very high-quality oil paintings. The theme of the story is the preparations that Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves are making so that all goes well when it is time to deliver the goodies on Christmas Eve.
 The book also includes elements of the “search for an item in the image” genre, which can be done given the exquisite detail of the images. The level of the prose is that of the latter years of middle school, so it can be read by children of that age and understood by those even younger. This is a superb book for a seasonal “read and show” event, where the passages are read, and the book turned so that the audience can see the images.
