Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–In a northern village, the tiniest of Santa's Helpers (a miniature version of the red-suited gent himself) takes great pride in making toys and baked goods, but he is never allowed to accompany the big man and the other Helpers on Christmas Eve because of his small size. Overhearing some forest creatures complain about being left out of the festivities, he gives all of his homemade gifts to them and officially becomes "Santa for the Animals." The paintings are both dramatic and appealing, with thick, dark lines setting off the reds, whites, and browns of the snowy scenes. A simple, satisfying tale.–E. M.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Charming book with wonderful illustrations. I bought it as a Christmas present for a 3-year-old, and had previously read it aloud to groups of children aged 4 - 9. Excluded from traveling with the other helpers to distribute gifts on Christmas because he's too small, he arranges to give gifts to the forest animals, who are very appreciative. So are the other helpers when the find out about it later.

Santa's littlest helper is always the first of the helpers to bake sweets, clean his sleigh, polish his boots and have all presents for the children wrapped and ready to go... but every year, the biggest helper always tells him no, he can't go with the others to help Santa deliver presents because he is just too small.

But one year while venturing outside alone, sad that he never gets to visit the children, the littlest helper hears voices in the great forest. The animals were complaining that they never get Christmas presents - but the littlest helper can change that...

This is a beautifully illustrated and heart warming story that reminds us that even the smallest of people can make a big difference.

We are a little late with this book. It starts out sort of sad. None of the other big santas will let the littlest help out. They not only leave him out but also make fun of him. In the end he finds a job that is perfect for him. This book could be used for helping children understand how it feels to be left out and how to look for a place they belong when they are left out. While it was not a favorite of my 8 year old's, I felt it had a lot to say. I have it recommended for ages 4-8 years.
