PreS-Gr 2—The woodland denizens of a northern Canadian forest can't wait for Christmas, because that's when their Santa secretly leaves gifts (heart-shaped stones, bells, acorns, and the like) for everyone. Big Snowshoe the rabbit is absolutely convinced of Santa's existence; Little Snow, his younger brother, is a bit more skeptical, and nothing Big Snowshoe or the other animals say as they decorate a Christmas tree make him feel any differently. Side panels on each page show lemming elves creating the various gifts. A minor accident on the frozen stream gives Big Snowshoe the idea to hang ice crystals on twigs, and the sound they make alerts everyone to the appearance of Santa, who is a snowy owl. As usual, Brett's illustrations are the highlight—lush and magical, filled with whimsical details that will reward repeated viewings. The story itself is adequate (though the twist in which the predator delivers gifts to his normal prey is ingenious) and could play a part in a nonreligious holiday program.—Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library

In this story it's the first Christmas Eve for "Little Snow", and his older brother, "Big Snowshoe" tells him that the "Animal's Santa" comes tonight. He tells Little Snow that none of the other animals know who the Santa is but in the morning they always find presents like, a bell, a puzzle toy, a heart-shaped wishing stone or even a stack of acorns.
Little Snow finds this hard to believe and thinks his big brother is fooling him. As the story continues, each animal tries to imagine who Santa might be. It's now time to snuggle into their dens for the night and she what happens in the morning......No footprints in the snow? Who could Santa be? Look up above and gifts begin to fall from the sky, with a special wish from a special Santa wishing all a very Merry Christmas.
The story is special, the beautiful illustrations pure delight and each panel engages the little ones as the other animals tell about Christmas past. A keeper for your personal collection. Children and adults will love this one.
