My Never Ending List

I read almost every genre & I enjoy venturing into unfamiliar territory. As a library volunteer, I'm constantly bringing home novels. Being a substitute teacher, I read lots of YA & children's books.  

How To Catch Santa

How to Catch Santa - Jean Reagan, Lee Wildish

There is so much to like about this children’s book from the rhythm of the words, to the bright illustrations, to the fun diverse text, this book is a great holiday treasure. The author assists the reader on a quest as she helps you plan to catch Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. Of course, you cannot keep him for long as he has a busy night ahead of him; therefore she helps you prepare for the night in the most effective way. I loved the cheerful, playful language that covers an abundant amount of activities that the author helps you get prepared for. These activities center on Santa and his arrival. The author covers many ideas including how you might catch Santa, to questions that you might want to ask him, to things you might want to give him or tell him. There are plenty of suggestions on how to prepare yourself for these events, add to that the wonderful bold illustrations and children will want to read this book over and over again. It’s a cute book and there is so much to love about it, children can imagine themselves trying to catch Santa on the one night of the year that he is out visiting their house. Answering the questions that are posed inside this book, children can be a part of this fictional read and enjoy the colorful bright illustrations and be part of this magical dream world.
