The house is decorated and the tree is laden with ornaments and lights. It’s Christmas Eve and everyone is excited. Danny’s older brother tops the tree with the star and then is sent off to bed. Daddy thinks Danny should go to bed too, but Danny has made some cookies for Santa to share with the less fortunate children of the world. He wants to make sure Santa gets the cookies. But he falls asleep in his chair by the tree before Santa arrives. The next morning there is a note for Danny from Santa. And his older brother had a bad dream to share, that maybe Santa had visited him the night before with a new baby brother as a Christmas gift.

Silviya Rankova’s picture book story, Cookies For Santa: Holiday Christmas Story, will warm the hearts of young and old. The message is about the true meaning of Christmas, sharing love and caring for others. Danny has the right idea with his cookies for Santa to take to less fortunate children. The story is told in simple language so young readers can follow along and perhaps learn to read the story themselves. The colorful illustrations help develop the plot. The end of the book has a picture for young readers to color by themselves and a maze puzzle to solve. The ever-popular lyrics for Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer are included at the end as well as a paragraph describing some of the Christmas traditions of Bulgaria. This is a charming family story about Christmas traditions.
