Some start on their Christmas decorating/shopping//music the morning after Thanksgiving.
Before heading to bed, I read Little M Santa’s Secret Deal – Who else signed it and where you can find proof of the deal in your room right now; a new book by father and Emmy award winning TV reporter from Maryland Joel D. Smith.
Despite not reading every word to my little guy (book is for 5-7 year olds) I improvised and told the story based on the illustrations. They clearly had him hooked because he was full of questions, “why did the girl elf want to take all the toys?!”
AnTas (short for Anastasia TasMerelda Claus) accompanies Santa to every home in the world. But it’s not just toys she is after. Nope. Christmas lights, chocolate goodies and even rhymes themselves are taken away from the children.
Before turning off the lights, he quickly tidied up his toys and books he had on the floor. The next morning he did a quick inventory of his stuff and happily exclaimed “mami, my toys are still here!”
I was kindly sent this book by Joel D. Smith for review. No other compensation given.
