Santa rides a donkey or a camel in some places so this was a bit challenging to explain to my 5 year old - why does Santa ride these there but not his reindeer? Overall, we really enjoyed this book and there are several recipes at the end of the book but my older son and I both wanted each treat listed in the book to have a recipe at the end. She gave us very few of the recipes that she talked about in the story. We can look them up but it would be nice to have them in the book and you cook your way through Christmas making something new to add to your Christmas traditions.
in countries like Sri Lanka or Indonesia a small population of the country celebrates Christmas.
Still, it's a very enjoyable Christmas and recipe book.
Following Santa's trip around the globe, M.E. Furman briefly describes the uniqueness of 32 Christmas celebrations around the world, including Santa's name, the location of gift delivery, and especially the treats - or gifts - left by the children. It is very diverse (culturally and physically) and includes traditions unknown to many children (and possibly adults).
This is truly an amazing picture book which will be sure to open discussions about the differences in weather (summer in Australia), traditions (leaving presents on/under pillows), and the universality of treats for Santa. Definitely a treasure I will add to my Christmas book collection.
