Merry Christmas, Little Elliot*
Author: Mike Curato
Illustrator: Mike Curato
Everyone’s favorite elephant, Little Elliot, just can’t seem to find his Christmas spirit. But he wants to – more than anything. He asks Santa, but the jolly old soul tells Elliot he must find it himself. With Mouse to help, Elliot tries, but he can’t seem to find Christmas cheer anywhere. Not at the performance of the Nutcracker, not at Rockefeller Center’s iconic tree, not even while sledding in the park. Just as Elliot is about to give up, something magical blows right into his face. It’s a letter addressed to Santa! But they can’t deliver it. But perhaps, Elliot and Mouse can make a Christmas wish come true!
Your young readers will adore this poignant holiday tale as their favorite little elephant discovers the true meaning of Christmas. Ages 3-7. 32pp.
