If Santa didn’t have his sleigh by Gilberto Mariscal.


Lucy and Mary love Christmas. It’s their favorite time of the year! However, there is something that worries Lucy a lot: If Santa did not have his sleigh, how would he bring his gifts to all the children of the world? Luckily her mom knows the answer to that question… and she is going to tell them!

Lucy’s Review

A fun story about a child questioning how Santa would deliver all his presents if his magical sleigh was broken. ‘Mum’ comes up with lots of fun suggestions which will keep children entertained. A story with bright illustrations that will get your kids asking questions about Santa and spark their imaginations.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

Lucy’s Review

An adorable classic that is one of the favorite picture books in our house at the moment. Everyone knows the story of the little caterpillar who eats and eats, gets sick, (then eats a leaf) and turns in to a butterfly. Lucy’s favorite is the watermelon (happy with that over all the sugar filled treats). A great book for young kids with its own ‘eaten’ holes and beautiful illustrations.
