This picture book duo has written several how to books that are fun to read as well as listen to. They are great for story time, bed time or any time and now they have added a holiday themed book the series. How to Catch Santa is sure to become to the go to book each Christmas season. I mean what kid hasn’t wanted to catch Santa, I know mine have. The question’s in the book are all ones my kids have asked me and I’m sure I asked my mom also. The author gives kids many great ideas on capturing Santa’s attention long enough to get a hold of him. Then there are the been here clue’s like a trail of glitter to missing carrots. The text is funny and easy to read and holds the youngest of listener’s to the older readers. The illustrations are bright and colorful with cute drawings. It’s a win win in my book and one I would gift to families who are looking for cute Christmas books to add to their holiday collection.
