Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 3
Format: Board book
What did you like about the book? This is the perfect book to read to start the holiday season. Children always have questions about the who, what, when and whys of life. There is no exception to this rule even when it comes to Santa’s elves. The book explores all the magical things that Santa’s elves are made of. Some of the elves are made with powdered sugar, gingerbread, candy canes and even a little sparkle. All of these things are what make elves so magical. The book’s illustrations are bright and colorful. The images look like digitized water color paintings of elves and other Christmas holiday decor.
