Review: Sarah has a list of five wishes for what she wants for Christmas but she can’t find Santa to tell him. But her mom has a secret of her own and keeps helping her through her list.
This was really cute, I loved that Sarah was so excited for Santa and wanted to tell him what was on her list. She didn’t share with anyone what her list was and it was really beautiful at the end learning exactly what it was she had wanted.
I love that this book had a sweet message for enjoying and loving the simpler things that are gifts in your life. None of the children in this book asked for loads of presents and all wanted simpler things that they loved.
The illustrations throughout were really beautiful and I loved looking at them on each page, seeing what Sarah was doing and how she was celebrating Christmas with her mother. A really sweet Christmas book, a sweet message, cute characters and really beautiful illustrations.
