This was a Christmas present for my daughter.

Basically, Christmas is on it's way and Santa gets hit with a dew drop on the nose. He investigates and finds the North Pole is melting. He checks the ice caps and finds they are melting. Santa then decides to find out why and becomes interested in CO2 emissions. He then goes about visiting the children to get them interested in solving the problem.

The author stated she set out to offer a tool to not scare children. But the story is a little weak and not written well as my daughter seems not to interested in it. Especially when there are things like a lady in pink blow snow and doves and I couldn't explain who she was.

Then there is the blasphemy that Santa would wear a green suit as he works towards educating the world of this problem. My girl says Santa only wears Red!

There are some suggestions for kids can do such as using reusable lunch packing versus the throw away, recycling, planting trees, etc. However, the schools and the girl scouts are giving these out anyway.

One thing to note is the author is donating some of the proceeds to charities that help the environment.

It's an ok book that could have been better.

I must say that this book was not what I expected. I should of known by the title but didn't think of anything of it. I thought it was just going to be another story about Santa and Christmas but it is actually about getting kids to be familiarized with what is going on with the environment and global warming. My son really enjoyed the book so he wanted to take it to his Pre-K class to read during their reading time. The teacher emailed me back and told me how wonderful the book was and how the children really enjoyed reading and learning something different from this book.

The idea might be good but I cannot read a word neither on a mobile nor on a Galaxy. The author should know more about the design on these new platform. Design matters if you cannot read the book with your kinds.

Unlesbar weil die Autoren keinerlei Ahnung vom neuen Medium haben. Die Bilder sind winzig, der Font unlesbar. Selbst wenn der Inhalt gut wäre - was soll man mit einem Buch das man mit seinen Kindern nicht lesen kann.

I won "When Santa Turned Green" by Victoria Perla on Tommy Nelson's Facebook page in the Countdown to Christmas giveaway. This hardback is an environmentally friendly children's picture book that gives the lowdown on global warming and what children can do about it. It tells the story of Santa becoming aware that the North Pole is changing and he sounds the alarms for the children of the world to make a difference and become active in their world.

I read this book to my 8 year old. She said it was a good book. However, she didn't have any notions to change habits to save the environment. It pretty much struck her as entertainment. We are a fairly active family as far as environmental concerns: compost old food, plant garden and can/freeze our own fruit and vegetables, use rabbit manure to fertilize the garden, do not use pop cans or paper plates, tend to reuse all household containers etc. So maybe it didn't strike her as new material. I do plan to use this book as an example on how she should shut off lights, though. She could use some work there. The only fault I had with the book was that the pictures seemed dark or dim. I would recommend brighter colors.
