The Lost Gift by Kallie George - OPTIONAL

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.
