Santa's Countdown to Christmas: 24 Days of StoriesSanta's Countdown to Christmas by Kim Thompson
Publisher: Crackboom! Books
Publication Date:  October 2, 2017

Format: Ebook



Goodreads Synopsis: 
Help little ones be patient until Christmas with this storytelling twist on the timeless Advent tradition. Each day, starting December 1st and counting down to Christmas Eve, children can read a story that recounts how Santa and Ms. Claus, the elves and the reindeer get ready for the big night ahead, from Santa's initial fitness test (will he make it through the chimney this year?) to a behind-the-scenes look at Santa's toy factory. A book that captures all the excitement and the magic of the holiday season. 

Yay Holiday Books! This is a great idea for a holiday book. It takes the advent calendar we all love so much and is a book version. Each day/night you have a bit more to read about how Santa prepares for his journey around the world.

What I liked about this book was the advent calendar feel - I didn't read it like that but thought it was a really good idea for parents and kids reading together each night. However, some of the days were very short excerpts which was a little sad.

The sections have illustrations as well, of what Santa and his elves are up to and overall I thought this was a very creative book for the holiday season.
