I was drawn to this book when I saw it on the shelf as it conjured up so many happy memories of teaching this song to my own children and pre-school children, as well as the hours I spent listening to the "Sing-a-long with Mitch Miller" Christmas album when I was little

Summary: The classic Christmas song Must Be Santa has been covered by music giants Bob Dylan and Raffi. Now, for the very first time, the fun and festive lyrics have been paired with adorable illustrations in this Big Little Golden Book hardcover edition. It makes the perfect gift

I adore books that can be sung and now the classic song "Must Be Santa" has been presented in a larger and more eye-friendly Golden Book format. A must-do for any December Boogie Woogie book-type storytimes!

Adorable illustrations. Repetetive text. Supposedly based on a song. Should have included the music notes.

themes: bedtime, Christmas, Santa Claus

I think it'd be impossible to read this story without singing it as the song.

Love Santa!

The illustrations were good. We used to sing this song at our Ward Christmas party, before Santa came out, so this brought back good memories.

Easy to read; for kids who love Santa. Descriptions of Santa in many ways; poetic; excitement builds as Santa arrives! Great for storytime.

Both my boys (ages 4 & 9) enjoyed singing this book, rather than reading it. The illustrations are cute.

Boring

Didn’t keep my 5 year olds interest. He loves to be read to but this was just boring. No real story.
