Overview

A creative holiday story that introduces kids to environmental awareness with ways that they can make a big difference.

It's November up in the North Pole. Everything's going along smoothly at Santa's workshop until he discovers a leak in his roof. Santa soon learns that this little leak is connected to a far bigger problem. The North Pole is melting because of something called global warming! Faced with the reality of what this could mean for Christmas, not to mention the planet and the future, Santa is determined to turn things around. To do so, he calls upon the people he knows better than any other-the children. Much to Santa's joy, they respond in a way that makes all the difference . . . in the world.

"When Santa Turned Green helps even the youngest child grasp the importance of caring for our planet and solving the climate crisis." Former Vice President Al Gore

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
No, Santa has not turned green from jealousy. He's just become a part of the environmental movement to combat global warming. In November, Santa discovers a leak in his roof caused by melting snow, which causes him to investigate climate conditions at the North Pole. After seeing the damage to the polar ice cap for himself, Santa decides to take action by asking children for their help. The kids in the story make small changes in their lives to help reduce global warming, and Santa makes changes too. He starts using wind and solar power for his toy factory and wearing green-colored suits (except on Christmas Eve) to draw attention to the green movement. An introductory author's note explains the reasons for writing the story (to explain global warming in a non-frightening way) and details the environmentally friendly materials and processes used in the production of the volume. While this isn't strictly a Christmas story, environmental issues are important at any time of year, and this effort presents an entertaining introduction to the subject for younger children.

    Don't waste your money on the nook copy. Too small to read!

    This is money thrown away. I can't enlarge the words so I can't read the book. There are no settings for this book to enlarge the pea size print. I should get my money back for this. No one could possible read this as it is.

    Very cute book. Good for school age kids to get them thinking. Makes a great gift. Found it on a "green blog" as a recommendations (blog.littlegreenbooties.com) where there is a lot of other great "green" information!

    "When Santa Turned Green" is a good book to try and get kids interested in a "greener" way of life.

    Allthough the idea of this book is noble and great, it is a little old for the 7 year-olds out there. It was a book that my nephew picked out along with others, but when it came time to read it, it was very hard to get through it with him. He was not very interested at all. Usually we can sit down and read several books together, but he was not interested very much. I am always interested in ways to teach people how to recycle and to try to live "greener", but I think it was a little old for my nephew. Don't be discouraged though, the idea is great and should try to be taught at any and all levels.

    A reviewer

    My children loved the book and it helped open a whole discussion about what they could do to help with global warming. Santa lives in the North Pole and the artic ice is melting. It gives examples of what children and adults can do to help.

    At last!

    I am a second grade teacher and have labored over how to appropriately introduce global warming to seven year olds. And yet, this is exactly the audience that needs to be reached. This book came out at just the right time with just the right amount of seasonal joy and reality that isn't overwhelming or frightening. It outlines a problem and offers solutions. It makes you feel powerful instead of powerless about a very real and very pressing issue.
