George, Kallie The Lost Gift, illustrated by Stephanie Graegin. PICTURE BOOK. Schwatz & Wade (Random), 2016. $18.
Four small animals are waiting to see Santa on Christmas Eve, when they see a present fall from his sleigh. At the urging of Bird, they take the present to the intended receiver. When they finally arrive home, they find that Santa left a gift for them.
This is a cute Christmas story. I can’t help thinking that it would be even better as a board book. The illustrations are charming, the story is sweet.
