I just read the book to my son's 3rd Grade class for their Reading with Dad's day. The kids loved it and so did I. I only wish it was available on the Kindle.

It gets too hot at the north pole and Santa and the elves stop making toys. Mr. Jenkins did not want to see Christmas skipped so he went and wished for snow. Then a blizzard comes along and Santa starts working on Christmas again.
I think kids would love this book because it is so comical and ridiculous. The pictures are also good because every time you read it you see something new. This would be a great book to read to my kids around the holidays.

When I was a child this was one of my favorite holiday books. This story book has detailed pictures and a good story line about a crazy christmas blizzard. There are fun characters and crazy weather events that make the draw the reader in and is perfect for children. I would definitely recommend this book.
We enjoyed this book....a really fun story. The way the story is told is like a conversation....well a one sided one. It would be as if I was standing in front of you telling it to you and that makes for an easy read outloud book. Also makes it easy to give voices to the characters, since you only have a handfull of people speaking in the story.

The storyline is pretty interesting, unique I would say. Its the first time I have read about a Christmas blizzard in just this way.

The pictures are gr

This story is about an elder man telling a young girl about a snow storm that occurred a long time ago. It was the biggest snow storm he had ever seen. This story integrates a little bit of science and fun that would be engaging for the students as a read aloud.

Recommends it for: 2nd,3rd grade
This book has great voice. It would be great for teaching kids how to write. The story itself deals with unpredictable weather and how it was affecting Santa and the rest of the world. It's a fun book.
Charming, expressive, action-packed illustrations fill the pages. Lengthy, but engaging Christmas tall-tale.

themes: blizzard, Christmas, Indiana, Santa, snow, , tall tale, witch
A delightful Christmas tall tale! Fun to read.
