We didn't finish this. The book is far too busy, there is just far too much going on, the format of the book is annoying as hell, I can go on and on. When I first laid eyes on it I thought how great it might be. The premise is exciting of course. But it falls very flat. It's hard to keep on track when reading it because of all the excess material stuck any which way. One the pages we read reach double page spread had one paragraph to it and that paragraph wasn't at all fun to read. It read more [...]
I didn't care much for the the format. Very tiny pictures with tons of details made if fell like information overload, but clever idea for a book.
How Santa Really Works is a fun, engaging book that details the truth behind everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Santa and Christmas.I’ve read this book many times over the years and while it’s definitely not an easy bedtime read - there’s a LOT happening on each and every page - it is a book that young children can find something of interest in on every page. Whether they want to know where Santa lives, who the elves help Santa or how Santa’s sleigh can carry all those present [...]
Cute pictures, funny and interesting story.
This book is a GREAT book, but I must admit I am an engineer! Yes, it is extremely complicated and definitely is not the book for a quick bedtime story. But if you have a little engineer on your hands, he or she will definitely want to study this book. This is a textbook on Santa's business and how it works. It will teach your child to think out how things are made and how they get done. The illustrations are cute, colorful and full of dozens of intriguing details. An added bonus is all the funn [...]
I spend 25 minutes to read this book.Also, I spend about 40 minutes more for extensive reading.Summarysanta, wonder,elves, help, write, guess, presentActually, I think it was not good summary because it was not a story. However, I could enjoy reading this book! The most interesting point was how santa enter int the house.Questions1 what do you want for christmas present? I want a speaker to listen to the music in my house. I live alone, so I want some noise. Quiet room makes me un confortable.2 [...]
This book is in a way very funny and that is one reason why I like it. On each page, the elves are talking and they say funny things. One part of the book is about how Santa gets through the chimneys since he is so fat. Since it is usually very cold on Christmas Eve, it is actually a suit that makes him really warm so he won't freeze. When he gets to each house, he takes it off. Underneath, he has an inflatable suit. If someone wakes up, he turns a switch to inflate it with helium, which carries [...]
Fun concept--giving children the inside scoop on Santa, his workshop, toy delivery, etc--with some clever explanations. I agree with some of the other reviewers that the text (and some of the illustrations) veers too often toward information overload--especially for younger children. Some of the vocabulary wasn't age-appropriate either (e.g most young children don't understand the meanings of "manufacturing" or "engineering"). This was one of those children's books that felt like it was written [...]
This book really challenges the theories that Santa doesn't exist.or affirms our belief that he does, you choose. I love the explanations of how the North Pole works, and that Santa is actually slim with a heated body suit, or even how presents get delivered via transporters. For my 4yo, this book provides plenty of critical thinking "food" for thought. He ponders over whether we have elves here in our house and whether Santa is really "watching" to see if he should be on the nice or naughty lis [...]
An excellent book not only to talk about Santa and how he manages to deliver the presents, but also to talk about the different professions that appear in the book and how something is created (here the presents). One could even use it by following the "directions" and steps of the book to create something with their child or class.
I love this book. My children requested reading it almost every night in December. This is a cute and funny way of finding explanations for your gowning children's questions about Santa and helps keep the magic going.
Love this book! It's soooo cute. Reminds me how much I loved Christmas and Santa Claus. I still like to read the stories of Santa Claus. Wish I read this in childhood. Kids who love Santa should read this and love more!!
Ethan (age 5) brought this home from the school library. I found it quite amusing but it was a bit over Ethan's head. I'd definitely say this is for older kids because they'd understand it better.I found it amusing though. :)
i like all the elves. by KatieExcellent guide to answer all your child's questions about the guy in the big red suit. This one lasted way more than one night.
The pop ups are great. Nice and colourful. The rest is like a report on how Santa works rather than a story. Still great to read before Christmas.
I really love santa d I will allways beilive in him.
cute premise on Santa's secret operations, very busy artwork though.
This is the boys' favorite xmas book.
Toy Sciences and the CCE (Christmas College for Elves!) and the CIA (Christmas Intellingence Agancy!) Epic book!
With lots of diagrams and colorful illustrations, this humorous take on Santa's habitat, helpers, and work schedule is a feast for the eyes as well as the ears.
All your questions about Santa are answered here. Best part: Diagrams about Santa and elves and presents, including little balloons of conversation. Ages 8-12.
Be sure to give yourself at least an hour total to plow through this word and image-filled book.
