My Take on the Book
Here is a new Christmas story for your young child. The story is written in rhyme. The main characters are two children who are getting ready for Christmas Eve and Santa's arrival.
Nick East's illustrations are detailed and show beautifully the excitement that the children are feeling for this special night. There is delight as the children venture to see Santa and ride in his sleigh but of course return home just in time to hop in bed before Santa fills their stockings.
