5.0 out of 5 stars santa baby....... 3 Dec 2004
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
Another great Rod Campbell book! I have given it 5 stars even though it borrows heavily from "Dear Zoo" and "My Presents".
Colourful, clear illustrations to appeal to toddlers, and good sturdy construction to withstand their manhandling. My best Christmassy buy for my 15 month old daughter.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same 8 July 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Money for old rope is the expression that springs to mind. Rod Campbell has a real niche in the lift-the-flap book market. His books have generally been very popular in our house so I ordered this to add to the collection.

Each page has a gift-wrapped flap with a picture of a present underneath. There is a small amount of text describing the present. If it wasn't for the illustrations of Christmas wrapping paper I would have thought I was re-reading "My Presents" which is fairly tedious to begin with.

Still, the children like it. It adds a small amount of variety when it's brought out in December with the other Christmas stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT STARTER BOOK FOR YOUNG CHILDREN! 8 Jan 2012
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
The two little boys I bought these books for loved them. They were pre-Christmas presents to keep them occupied whilst their mummies were busy preparing for Christmas after the children's usual activities had finished for the holidays. Apparently, they love the other books by Rod Campbell, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars My son loves it! 22 April 2011
Format:Board book
My son loves lift-the-flap books and already had Dear Zoo so we chose this to get him ready for Christmas. Along with Spot's first Christmas he read Dear Santa every day in December and beyond. After a few unsupervised reading sessions he has managed to pull off some of the flaps but they were strong enough to be repaired quite well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book. 12 Feb 2014
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
A favourite of my granddaughters. She loves opening the envelopes inside, although under supervision, otherwise she
would rip them off. She is only a year old but she loves us to read it to her. All Rod Campbell books are good and she has
Dear Zoo too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dear Santa book for toddlers 21 Dec 2013
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
Great book, just right for toddlers who use their little fingers to open the cardboard pull downs! Fun and fascinating. We usually have to read the book at least three times after each other!

Really neat. The first time you look at it, it might be a bit difficult for a young child to lift the various parts, but if you help him or her, then it is much fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book
My 10 month old loves this book. I didn't know if it would be worth getting him a Christmas themed book but he has played with it so much making it really good value.
