I really enjoy the illustrations in this one. Reading through I find so many conversation triggers. We borrowed this one through READS and our local library to my Kindle. It was in the clear and better horizontal format. Although it is great on the kindle since the prices are the same I 'd be more likely to buy a physical copy.
Nina is happy to finally be able to work on Christmas toys, but she is the smallest and slowest toy-making elf. Santa tells her not to worry and she finishes her bear. Don't give up is a great theme.

Nikki Shannon Smith is a teacher at the same school where I teach. She understands kids. I can't wait to read this book when it comes out!

I was an elementary school teacher for 18 years, but now I'm a principal. The Little Christmas Elf (2011) is my first book. Look for it as part of a boxed set called Favorite Little Golden Books for Christmas on Sep...more
