Christmas in Summer by Suzy Cato & Itty Bitty Beats. Illus. Carla Martell. Pub. Scholastic, 2020.

December 3, 2020

Christmas in NZ does not fit the northern hemispheres portrayal of santa in the snow with his reindeer.

Down here “Christmas in summer it’s always a stunner, the children they laugh and they play”. This refrain is oft repeated through the story and the music can be downloaded or streamed. It is a catchy tune.

A typical beach scene – Santa enters on a surf board with presents and the reindeer sunbath in deck chairs. All sorts of family fun goes on, a picnic is held and santa gets tucked into the last of the pav.

Loads of fun for juniors and guess what two words appear at the end of the story? Check it and find out.

Bright coloured illustrations with smiling faces and xmas joy.
