A sweet holiday story from a New York Times bestselling duo! From the New York Times bestselling team that brought us The Littlest Pilgrim comes a sweet new holiday follow-up filled with Christmas cheer and adorable stickers! Oliver may be the littlest elf in the North Pole, but he has a big desire to discover his very special job in Santa’s workshop! But after getting lost in the toy shop, making a mess at the bookshop, and falling in the mixing machine at the bakery, is the littlest elf just too little? Perhaps he just needs the littlest reindeer to remind him what Christmas is all about!
A sweet story about an elf that at first seems too little to be of any real help in any of Santa’s workshops, but in the end finds a friend and a way to spread a little of his own Christmas cheer! The illustrations are vibrant and fun, and I love how encouraging all of the elves are, even when the littlest elf makes lots of mistakes along the way. This one is also a pretty fast read that will leave your littlest readers feeling big enough to be real helpers in their own special way.
I love that this book takes you through all of Santa’s different workshops with the little elf while he tries to find his place, and that he ends up using his talent with his new friend to cheer others up. This cute story is a great reminder that we all have different talents. The illustrations in this book are also very cute!
