One of the best Santa Claus books that I've ever seen. Amazing artwork and very memorable. A book from my childhood.

This review also appears on my blog, Read-at-Home Mom.

Though it has probably been twenty years, I still think of Jolly Old Santa Claus as a "new" addition to my family's Christmas Eve repertoire. We always read Twas the Night Before Christmas after church on Christmas Eve from the time I was about two years old, but we didn't discover Jolly Old Santa Claus until I was in mid-to-late elementary school, so though it became a tradition, it wasn't part of our original tradition.

I think we took to it

I think this was a good book and a lot of kids might like it. The book is mostly pictures but is still good.

Plot- Santa and his elves get ready for Christmas night. They prep the reindeer and sleigh. Then Santa goes on his way to deliver toys and comes home and rests with a cup of hot coco.

Characterization- Santa is the main character and he is said to be a jolly good fellow.
Mrs. Clause is Santa’s wife she helped him with getting things ready for Christmas.
The Elves played a big part in the book

I bought this one because the copy my mother had read to me as a child was growing old. I was disappointed to find that although there was still the beautiful art work, the text was totally different.

This delightfully illustrated book describes Santa's life in the North Pole. I like how the author included things to look for in the illustrations as part of the text, making this an interactive treat for children, young and old.

We had this book when our daughter was little. The art work and the story is delightful.

The 4 is on Jonah's behalf. I like the art work but the poem is strained

This was an enjoyable little book. I have fond memories of it from an edition my grandmother had when I was a boy. I always loved the pictures, especially all the little details.
