By Angie Karcher
Hi! Do you like poetry? Well, Angie Karcher certainly does! This whole book is actually a poem. Just to warn you, this review is going to be just a little bit different than the rest of my reviews because the book was so short.
This book is about a family. They’re riding along a gravel road looking for a Santa statue that they always pass by and know that they’re almost home. But, as the years go by, the Santa starts to get old and warn, and one day when they’re driving along, the Santa is nowhere in sight. A few years later, one of the family members find the Santa abandoned on the side of the road.
Will he be able to help the Santa statue in time for Christmas, or will all hope be lost and that Santa that they hold so dear be gone forever? As I always say, read the book to find out!
I recommend this book to readers who love poetry. As I have already mentioned, this book is a poem. But, it is also a great story and I think that young readers will love this book. This book is based on a true story. At the back of the book, you can read the true story and find a timeline at the very end.
A few helpful things I like to say about the books I read:
“Run and Get Mom” (how I describe the scariness factor): There were no scary parts in this book.
“Yucky-Lovey Stuff” (how I describe the romance factor): Zero. None. Nada. (In Spanish, nada means none.)
I give this book 4 wands.
I would have given this book 5 wands, but it was just a little under my reading level. Better for kids 7 and younger.
