A World of Cookies for Santa: Follow Santa’s Tasty Trip Around the World
Christmas books are a wonderful holiday tradition, and M.E. Furman and Susan Gal have created an excellent new book to add to your family’s Christmas reading.
This book will take you all around the world with snippets about how different cultures welcome Santa and what sweet treats they feed him. Beginning with Christmas Island, Gal’s warm and bright illustrations set a festive tone that’s guaranteed to get anyone in the mood for a happy holiday. The book is laid out in chronological order of who celebrates Christmas first geographically, ending with Hawaii.
The author knows that reading about a whole world of sweets and cookies isn’t good enough. As a fun bonus, recipes are provided at the back of the book for many of the desserts highlighted in the book. Adventurous families may chose to make and sample their own armchair Christmas tour of the world.
This book makes a fantastic addition to any family’s holiday collection. Its informative nature gives it staying power as children grow up, and the recipes provide a valuable bonus that also doesn’t rely on age. Enjoy this unique twist on Christmas holiday books.
