This book entertained my 4th grade class in a read-aloud and inspired writing of our own by brainstorming ideas on ways to catch Santa. The colorful pictures contain details that caught the students’ attention. There were several giggles in anticipation of the direction of the story. After waiting for days, two siblings find themselves preparing to catch Santa on Christmas Eve.
