A World of Cookies for Santa by M.E. Furman - ADVISABLE

Furman, M. E. A World of Cookies for Santa: Follow Santa’s Tasty Trip Around the World.  PICTURE BOOK.  Illustrated by Susan Gal.  Houghton Mifflin, 2017.  $17.

Join Santa at 32 of the different countries he visits on his yearly trip around the world.  Furman gives his name, the most traditional cookie, and even the beverage that might be left for Santa.  Furman also includes 9 recipes to try for your own international adventure.

I at first though that the book was too ambitious with info about so many countries, but each vignette works just right to offer a whirlwind glimpse, just like Santa’s visits.  Maybe your family would start a new cookie tradition.  I know I want to try out all of the cookies my self.
