5.0 out of 5 stars Santa & The Little Teddy Bear 23 Nov. 2010
By R.J.K. Kendle - Published on
As I settled down for a (hopefully) good Christmas read, I was more than delighted and my Grandchildren were captivated by what must be a new Christmas classic, "Santa & The Little Teddy Bear". The author paints a vivid and delicious picture of Christmas with all the memories and feelings they evoke with fat, fluffy snow flakes, jingle bells, candles and an enchanted little toy shop at Christmas Eve. This lavish and beautifully illustrated book is certainly an heirloom quality book with 22 full color pictures, thirty-eight Christmas carols, songs and music for lots of family Christmas joy. Wonderful for families who play instruments.
The adventure begins with Santa, his reindeer, and Bilbo the little teddy bear who needs a family for Christmas. As Santa and Bilbo travel the globe, they visit places like Holland, Italy, Australia, Africa, and Hawaii. We share the adventure and learn about holiday traditions around the world as well as the true meaning of Christmas time. This book will be treasured in my house that I will pass it on. I was so happy to see a new Christmas book come out that has depth, quality and the essence of the spirit of Christmas giving. That's what it's all about. Enchanting and magical illustrations! On a scale of 1-10 I give Santa and The Little Teddy Bear a +12 and my Grandchildren loved it! Santa & The Little Teddy Bear

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Beautiful 3 Aug. 2011
By RJ - Published on
When I opened the package, I was amazed at the beauty of the book! I must admit, it is not even Christmas and the book sits on my coffee table. Every time a guest in our home sees the book, they pick it up... they can't help it!

Santa and the Little Teddy Bear is a wonderful story, teaching how Christmas is celebrated around the world. It is one of the most beautifully illustrated books I have ever seen! It is sure to become a Christmas classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 12 Aug. 2011
By Diane Alexenberg - Published on
This is the most fabulous Christmas story book to come along in years! We learn the real story of Christmas, seen through the eyes of a forlorn little teddy bear, and are treated to the customs and songs of far away lands along the way. The illustrations are fantastic! This is a book that both children and adults will enjoy. Entertaining, educational, heart-warming, it's one that you will want to share together every Christmas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 15 Dec. 2011
By Got-It-Online - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I expected this to be a children's book for kids 3-6 years old but it's more of a long story mixed with Christmas songs. I haven't read the whole story yet but I don't think it was worth $29

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Family Christmas Treasure. 30 Oct. 2011
By Maria and Derek Lucking - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As I read this delightful story, I became more and more aware that it was more than a children's book for Christmas, I see it as a family book through which mother, father and children can share the delights of all the pleasures of Christmas. It is a book enthused with the Christmas tradition. The carols that appear throughout the book, form a collection that reminded me of our tattered copies of Carols, cherished in our family over decades; as much a part of Christmas, as Christmas pudding, the Christmas tree and Santa. It is a book to read and re-read at every family gathering. It is beautifully produced and delightfully illustrated, a joy for parents and children.
