That's Not Santa

That's Not Santa (Hello Reader (Level 1)) That's Not Santa story and pictures by Leonard Kessler

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
age group: preschool - 2nd grade
themes: Christmas, Santa, Comfort in the Familiar

When Santa can't find his red suit, he tries new looks but none of them seem to be quite right.

This is a cute book with fun illustrations. It's certainly not amazing reading, but it is designed for young readers with simple words and phrases that are good for beginning readers.

My own little Kindergartener laughed at all the different looks Santa tried but was very happy when Santa's red suit was 'found'.

A fun read around Christmas time.

I have a huge favor to ask! I'm in the process of looking for good kids' chapter books that I can read with my 4 year old. I've thought about reading some Roald Dahl, but think she's quite not ready for that yet. I'm just hoping to read a continuous story over the course of a week (or longer) so she can practice remembering what happened last time. Any suggestions?
