Santa's First Flight by: Sam Beeson

This is one of my favorite Christmas books for children.  I know you and your family will love it too.

Santa's First Flight is Sam Beeson's version of what happened when Santa first traveled all over the world delivering gifts to all the good boys and girls.

Santa was very young on his very first flight and he used penguins and a plow to get around the world.  There were many problems he faced on this first flight.  The people had heard that a stranger with penguins would be arriving and they did anything they could to try to keep this stranger out of their homes.  Santa barely made it on that very first Christmas Eve but he did and the people all loved their gifts.  He learned that changes needed to be made in order to be successful in the coming years.  I will let you read the story to find out what he did besides replacing the penguins  with reindeer.  

This story will have your children giggling when they see all the problems that Santa faced on that first Christmas Eve and you all will appreciate that the gift of giving is really what we celebrate each year.

Happy Daily Reading
