PreS-K-An 18th-century Papa narrates how he and the family pets assist Santa setting out Christmas presents for the family. Disney-like, full-color digital artwork lavishly depicts Moore’s Christmas scenario from the kids snuggled in their beds to clever details such as Santa’s reflection on each Christmas bulb. The book is subtle in its environmental and health-oriented treatment of the classic poem, except for Santa’s note on the back flap saying that he has stopped smoking to be healthier and has always worn fake fur to protect animals including the Arctic polar bears. Purposeful, but not overdone.-Maureen Wade, Los Angeles Public Library α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
