Santa is coming to Michigan - Steve Smallman (Illustrated by Robert Dunn and Jim Mitchell)

This is a personalized Christmas books that the kids are sure to enjoy!

Santa is about to head to Michigan to deliver toys to all the good girls and boys. But this year he has a new reindeer helping to pull his sleigh. When a snow storm causes Santa to get lost, even though he has a handy Santa-nav, the youngest reindeer helps guide them to safety. Santa is able to then deliver his presents to all the children. The reindeer have to work together to help get the job done, and at the end are rewarded for their hard work. 




"Santa steered them safely over the skyscrapers, along Atwater Street, above Milliken State Park and Harbor, and down into Gabriel Richard Park."

My Grandma lives in Michigan and sent us this book for Christmas for our children. I think it is marvelous how the author uses landmarks and cities of Michigan to personalize it for the kiddos. My family is unfamiliar with the area, but it is a wonderful idea and the kids learn important landmarks where their Grandma lives. As they get older we will research the area and sites in more detail. Multiple cities and names are mentioned throughout the book. It is easy to imagine seeing Santa and his reindeer flying over the neighbors house. The illustrations are absolutely lovely and the story easy to follow. I am thoroughly excited to add this book to our Christmas collection.
