5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Christmas Lesson! 2 Dec. 2010
By C. Fox - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I sent this to my 7-year-old great-niece in Florida, who is basically a very good little girl, to remind her that being good all year long, not just at Christmas, is important. This book is very well done.

The forgotten helper, a Christmas story by Lorrie Moore
One elf is left behind at a bad girls house. He must make her be good or Santa won't stop by to pick him up next year.
The elf is grouchy and didn't help watch the reindeer. For the year he comes up with a plan where others help him make her happy again.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Christmas Memories 6 Nov. 2000
By Julie E - Published on
Format: Hardcover
We had this book when it was first printed in the 80s and it became a family traditon to read it to us kids every Xmas. We loved the naughtiness of the main characters --The forgotten helper "Aben" and the bratty girl he has to convince to be good..Kids can identify with both characters. We even named our cat Neba (Aben spelled backwards) because of her someitmes unpleasant personlity...although she's really very lovable...just like Aben really is in the book.
This not your typical Xmas book. Through many home moves over the years, I lost our copy. I'm thrilled it's back again. A bunch of people will be gettiing it from me this holiday. Thanks...JE

5.0 out of 5 stars An appealing Christmas story for kids! 4 Dec. 2000
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
In Forgotten Helper, T. Lewis provides a Christmas story for kids with reading skills at the chapter book level: Aben is Santa's best toymaker -and the grouchiest, worst-behaved elf. When he's left behind by mistake, he must wait a whole year at a child's house for Santa's return - only to find his counterpart in an ill-behaved child. Black and white drawings in this appealing tale.
