When Santa was young and needed a job, no one was looking for a man in a red suit to deliver gifts on Christmas. So Santa tried just about everything -- from a chimney sweep to a postman to a circus performer. But none of these worked out. It wasn't until he met a group of elves who helped him use all his special talents, that Santa was able to find his dream job.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I firt heard this book at an adult Christmas luncheon and bourght it to read at our family gathering on Christmas day with great grands to 2yr. From tots to grands, this book is fun to read, especially aloud. The subtle elements of each event in Santa's search for the right job willmake the "elders" smile (from personal memories) and the children laugh. Might even be a great way to share your family's story.
It's a great book to read....... you'll never want to put it down!
