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.
