Picture Book Review: Santa Retires

Santa Retires
Written and illustrated by:  David Biedrzycki
Published by:  Charlesbridge, 2012

* Yesterday's book review was about how Santa got his job.  Well today's book review is about what happens when Santa retires!   Can't we all use a vacation?!  Well, in this new holiday-related story, Santa needs one.  He's happy when he's making toys for children but thinking about carrying heavy bags of toys and trying to squeeze down a too small chimney does not make him feel jolly.  So, he and Mrs. Claus decide to visit Mistletoe Island and end up making it their new home.  They enjoy the warm weather, start eating healthy and exericising, and Santa even loses weight.  But while they're gone things aren't going well back at the North Pole.  This is a cute holiday story that A) really makes me want to take a vacation someplace warm really soon and B) makes you wonder what would happen if Santa retired?!

This book was borrowed from the library.

Family Rating: 1 thumb up.
