What I like about this book are many things. Not only for children but adults as there is so much history to learn about.
love that they show color photos of a scene during the book. So much history: how the Santa letter came about over the years, the origins of Santa.
Each section of years has a summary and toy terminology and the charm of children, living history section and a don't miss area before it gets into the letters. Amazing to learn when tinker toys were invented among other toys that we in our 60's remember.
So many fond memories over the years, what a treasure this book is.
