Waiting for Santa

Publisher: Little Tiger Press

Review

It is Christmas Eve in the forest and Bear is confident that Santa Claus will visit. His friends are not so sure, as they don't think he'll be able to find them – but Bear has a plan.

As the animals set to work, making signposts and reindeer snacks, Badger remains sceptical. However, Mole, Mouse and Hedgehog are increasingly hopeful as they work together to decorate a spectacular tree to guide Santa to them. Their hard work and faith are rewarded when they receive a very special visitor.

Gentle illustrations accompany this simple tale of friendship, working together and, above all, not losing hope. This lovely picture book reminds readers that Christmas is a time for believing in all things magical.
