Santa Claus the World's Number One Toy Expert Send-A-Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How does Santa know how to match the exact right toy with the exact right kid every December?  He knows because he's the world's number one kid and toy and gift expert, and he works long, long hours the whole year through, taking notes, compiling his research, thinking and testing and changing his mind. Then, at last, he gets it all figured out, and on Christmas morning, he makes magic happen. With delicious humorous moments and a warm, unexpected ending, this book is truly a Christmas treat. And now, in the Send-A-Story format, it's ready to be mailed off to your favorite believer.

Synopsis:

The perfect lullaby for all restless babies and their exhausted, loving families.


Synopsis:

Harriet is a child who would drive any parent to shout.

Synopsis:

From celebrated picture book creator Marla Frazee, here is a playful glimpse into the life of Santa Claus.

Synopsis:

Harriet doesn't mean to be pesky. Sometimes she just is. And her mother doesn't mean to lose her temper. Sometimes she just does.

But Harriet and her mother know that even when they do things they wish they hadn't, they still love each other very much.

Synopsis:

A baby who howls all night, parents at their wits' end, and a big sister who accidentally on purpose started it all. With warmth and wry humor, Marla Frazee's refreshingly unsentimental interpretation of a timeless folk lullaby will bring a smile to the face of even the most exhausted family member.
