What a fun, detailed interactive book that let's the reader in on Santa's best-kept secrets. With flaps to lift, pictures to slide, envelopes to open, pages to unfold - this book is pure enchantment!!

Recommends it for: anyone who BELIEVES in Santa
ALL parents with young children (and anyone else!) who BELIEVE should have this book! This is a special book that lets you in on ALL of Santa's wonderful magic! A book that will be cherished and passed on for generations! my 13 and 11 year old boys STILL love to get this book out around the Holidays and read it; and they are now passing it on to their cousins by sharing Santa's magic with them! This was one of the best holiday purchases I have ever made for my family........
LOVE LOVE LOVE This book! If you have an almost non-believer, then this is the book to have them read. Exceptional explanations of Santa, Mrs. Claus, the elves, the reindeer and everything else up in the North Pole! Amazing illustrations and a few fun additions to the book make it worth every penny. I'm buying one for my second daughter so each of my girls has a copy for their children. It's that good.
We love this book. We read it every year at Christmas. It tells all about the North Pole: the Artic, Santa's House, Elves, the Mail Room (naughty vs nice list), Santa's Workshop, Mrs. Claus, the Reindeer (all 9), Santa's Magic Suit, the Sleigh, Traveling the World, Delivering Presents, Santa Sightings, Christmas Day at the Pole, and Aurora Borealis (northern lights). It is a wonderful book!

Combines actual facts about the arctic with encyclopedia-like facts about Santa's world. This "non-fiction" titles will answer any questions about toys, clothes and reindeer that kids might have. Beautiful gift book because of all the envelopes and flaps inside.
I really liked it. ...more
The only bad thing about this book is that Mrs. Claus' cookie recipe turned out horrible. We are sure they did it on purpose so that no one would find out the true secret.
Great book to share with your little ones at Christmas :)
Great pictures, fun to read and interactive.
