A heart-warming Christmas story to share with young children.

Snuggle up and share this magical Christmas story about a little girl who dreams of meeting Santa on Christmas Eve. With Santa's sleigh flying across a glittering moon, it's the perfect Christmas gift book for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.

Featuring the most beautiful winter wonderland scenes of a moonlit Christmas Eve, sumptuous silhouettes, and a charming rhyming story, this fun to read bedtime board book captures the excitement of the night before Christmas.

A little girl and her teddy bear go out in their snowy, moonlit garden, looking for Santa. Along the way, they meet playful fox cubs, Mrs. Owl, and Mr. Cool Cat, and wish them all good night. Soon the little girl learns that Santa only comes when you're fast asleep and tucked in bed. Can she still find a way to wish him good night?

Good Night, Santa is a delightful first story to share with very young children, and a wonderful Christmas picture book to treasure. Little ones will love the sparkly festive cover and the heart-warming Christmas story.

GOOD NIGHT, SANTA is a simple but elegant book that celebrates the Christmas season, perfect for bedtime. The illustrations are shown in one color with black and white with all the animals and people in silhouettes (as shown on the moon of the cover). The text is rhyming, showing a young girl wishing to say good night to Santa and saying good night to animals around her yard (owl, fox cubs, and cool cat) until the cat reminds her that Santa won't come until she is asleep. The book ends showing the cookies and note out for Santa after she has gone to bed.

What I loved: This is a really stunning board book- the illustrations are gorgeous, and the silhouette design allows children to place themselves into the story. The black contrast of the silhouettes makes this great even for infants who can enjoy the simple images and rhyming text. The font is clear and easy to read with a perfect text-to-image ratio, making it perfect for reading aloud. The book also is not religious, but celebrates Christmas in a fun way. This is a great book to read for bedtime with the good night phrasing and lovely, soft images. There is also a light-up cover, which is fun for kids to turn on and off (switch is on the back cover but it has a press button on the front) and enjoy the image of santa and his reindeer in front of the moon.

Final verdict: GOOD NIGHT, SANTA is a gorgeous and elegant holiday book, great for bedtime. Highly recommend for infants and toddlers to enjoy with their parents around the Christmas season. With stunning and simple images, rhyming text, and a light-up cover, this is a lovely way to celebrate the holiday.
