What did you like about the book? This is an adorable story about what Santa Claus was like growing up from babyhood to adult. His first words were “Ho, Ho, Ho!” His favorite color was read. He was fascinated with chimneys. When he received birthday presents, he was overjoyed; he would rewrap them and give them away! Illustrations done in pastels and colored pencils make this an absolute charmer!
