In a humorous, rhyming hunt, children are on the search to find out where Santa has disappeared to. With the help of a variety of polar animals and footprints Santa is eventually found and sent on his way... AWAY to make sure Christmas goes on!

This is a simple, short read, perfect for a pre-Christmas bedtime story! Children will love the sing-song nature of the story. This would also be an ideal time to help younger readers form an understanding of rhyming words, as the book is full of them! Definitely a great story to check out this holiday season!

Reading Activity:
  • Create a Santa treasure hunt of your own. Write up some rhyming clues and send your child(ren) on a scavenger hunt! Perhaps the reward at the end could be a new book or a chocolate Santa!
