Book Review


This tasteful book takes the reader on a journey to various countries including Germany, Japan, India, and Brazil. At each stop, cultural Christmas traditions, including the country’s custom for leaving cookies for Santa, is explored. In Malawi, sweet potato cookies are left for Santa. Australians put out fruit-filled treats for the man in red. Mexican wedding cookies are made for Santa before he comes to homes in Mexico. Every country's custom is accompanied by beautiful artwork depicting children in their preparations for Santa.
