Santa’s Christmas Countdown

Publisher: Townhouse Publishing Ltd

Santa’s in a panic! Santa’s in a tizz! He’s lost his list of jobs to do. “I don’t know where it is!”

Luckily, he’s sure he can remember all his tasks. Watch as he and the elves oil the sleigh and wrap the presents, brush the reindeer and pack the snacks. And of course, his final job is to deliver gifts for everyone!

With a touch and feel element on every page, young children will enjoy exploring Santa’s world. Stroke his fluffy beard, feel the reindeer’s hay, touch his velvety hat – even Santa’s lucky pants are padded!  

The bouncy rhyming text pulls the reader through the story, and there are some funny details in the illustrations, such as Santa accidentally kicking over a pile of presents. Watch out for his dog and cat too!

It is refreshing to see a Black Santa. Many children are sure to be delighted to see someone magical who could look like a member of their extended family.
