Synopsis

Santa's Book of Names by David McPhail

With over 230,000 net copies sold, Santa's Book of Names is now being reissued in paperback with fresh new cover design! With a classic holiday theme and strong literacy hook, this warm, inspirational story reminds readers that with patience and practice, you can achieve just about anything. Edward is great at counting and reciting the alphabet but he struggles when it comes to reading. After reading a bedtime story with his father on Christmas Eve, Edward falls asleep and dreams that he joins Santa as he delivers presents through the night. Slowly but surely, Edward sounds out the words in Santa's trusty book of names and eventually learns to read. In the morning, he wakes from his dream and discovers a present from Santa - a very special gift that Edward can read to his parents.
