Merry Christmas, Splat - Rob Scotton

This book is about splat the cat who wants desperately to get a gift from Santa. He does chores around the house that just turns into even bigger messes. However this book shows us that it is the thought that counts. Splat is pleasantly surprised on Christmas morning.  I would use this book around Christmas time. It is leveled 460 L.

This book is about animals that live in a white cabin in the woods. They make soup everyday and they each have their own specific duty to do. Until one day the duck wants to be the head chef and when he isn't allowed to he leaves. he other animals are unable to make the soup the right way without the duck so they set out to find him. When they are all together again they compromise and help each other create the soup. This would be great to read around the fall and Halloween time. It is leveled 310 L.

Book 5/100: The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus by L. Frank Baum
The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus - L. Frank Baum

When I was young, the toy-mation movie adaptation of this book was one of my favorite Christmas movies ever. It still is, although I don't watch it with the regularity of, say Muppet Christmas Carol. It was always a bit obscure -- it was not played every year like Rudolph or Frosty, and a lot of people had never seen it. I was thrilled to finally find it on VHS and later on DVD so that I can enjoy it for every Christmas and share it with my own kid(s) someday.

All of that preamble is to say that it was impossible for me to read this without my perception being clouded by nostalgia. Because the movie actually follows the book very well, reading the book was like seeing the movie in my mind once again -- and we've already established that I love the movie. Objectively speaking, if I read this without the context of my fondness for it, it may have felt a little like one of those books that was just one thing happening after the other without a really clear through-line. On the other hand, the prose was very often quite beautiful and it was easy to get swept away in the magic of the setting and the nostalgia of a Christmas origin story. I do think it's a pity that this is not as well known as Baum's Oz books, because I found it to be just as magical (although, like the Oz books, it did get a little clunky at the end.)
