What a wonderful twist! I wasn’t expecting the gift that Jacob chose to give in the children’s picture book A Gift for Santa. I love the way Santa thanks him every Christmas for the gift. What would you give Santa for Christmas? I love the gift idea Jacob comes up with, but I really love how happy it makes him knowing that he gave something very special to Santa. It’s an imaginative, thought-provoking story with a twist I wouldn’t have thought of. Author Zuzana Svobodová has created a wonderful story that children—and their parents—will love. This picture book is very imaginative and should get children thinking too. Who would Santa drink a cup of hot chocolate with? Who would Santa read a bedtime story with? If you were going to make a card or gift for Santa, what would it be?
How can you resist a children’s book with big, bright eyes on the front cover? A Gift for Santa contains lovable, huggable characters that children and their parents will find adorable. Beautiful, full-color images adorn the pages, which should attract children while the story will keep their attention. Zuzana Svobodová has created beautiful artwork of people and surroundings that are well executed and realistic looking. I admire how some pages have full color in the background and others have a part of an image with a white background. This wonderful story is bound to become a seasonal classic with its thoughtful story of love and friendship with a subtle dose of giving. The main character Jacob has us all believing it's better to give than to receive. This children’s picture book may be seasonal, but I think all home libraries should have this treasured story.
