Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom

5.5 / 7.0

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.

5.0 / 7.0

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!
