From the creators of the New York Times bestsellers How to Babysit a Grandpa and How to Babysit a Grandma comes an equally charming and hilarious holiday offering! After waiting for days and days and days, it’s finally Christmas Eve. And that’s when you can try to catch Santa. . . . From Jean Reagan and Lee Wildish, creators of the bestselling HOW TO... series, comes a delightful new offering, written again in a hilarious instructional style. Two sibling narrators give clever tips for “catching” Santa (be crafty! be clever! be gentle!) on Christmas Eve. Filled with humor and holiday warmth, this is a jolly read-aloud for the whole family to enjoy!
How to Catch SantaFeatured
HOW TO CATCH SANTA is an adorable picture book, one that can easily entertain the kids and adults alike. The two children narrating the story present a wide variety of ways to catch Santa, from candy cane distractions to promises of cookies. There are several moments throughout the story that are hard not to giggle at.
The illustrations are cute with softer lines, giving a warm tone to the story. The colors are bright and fun, and there is a great balance of text and illustration. I particularly like the pet cat and the small elves that sneak into a few of the pictures. There are just enough details in the illustrations to let your eyes wander but not too many to be overwhelmed or too distracted.
Overall, I highly recommend HOW TO CATCH SANTA for anyone full of the holiday spirit and prepared for a few giggles. The sweet illustrations and cute story make this a picture book destined to be read more than once.
