  • Wonderful, short, Christmas read

    I've read several of the books in this series and appreciate the author's quick, simple and down-to-earth story telling...and that while telling a tale, which kids enjoy listening to. While it's not necessary to read any of these before hitting this book, I did find that there is little to no introduction concerning Gregory or his bear, Sammy, in this one. So, I would recommend grabbing up one of the others in the series first to give kids a heads-up on the characters. Still, this is a cute Christmas tale and can be read alone, too. There's a noise in the room...or was there? Sammy's certain he heard it, and sure enough, they find Santa standing there. He read Gregory's letter and wants to grant his wish, but doing so will include an exciting adventure. I love this pair of characters. Gregory is a very average, curious boy, who is caring and, above all, loves his bear, Sammy. The idea of having the stuffed animal and him go on adventures together is something I could have related to very well as a kid...and something my own kids have enjoyed as well. The story is pretty short and just right for a cuddle in the chair or bedtime read. I do recommend this one as a read-aloud, since the text is a little much for first readers. Those who have a good handle on words won't have any trouble with it, though. I do wish that one or two sections were a bit more built out and not quite as rushed, but for a short dab into Christmasy thoughts, it's a fun read. The story stays on a very traditional, Santa path, which I also appreciate. It awakes the Christmas feeling and fits well with the excitement kids have for the holidays. Plus, those who dream of Santa will wish they could join Gregory on his adventure.

    Thanks for your feedback!
