Excerpt from the book: "Santa stopped in front of the doors and turned to face the children. 'Behind these doors is my workshop. P...lease look and don’t touch. Follow me.'"Just like many little boys and girls, Caleb dreams of visiting Santa's workshop. When he is at the Christmas parade in town, he finds a letter in the snow. He asks Mama if he can take it home with him to try figure out who it should be returned to. Little does Caleb know this letter is his ticket to the North Pole and to Santa's workshop!This story has been written in five parts for the intended purpose of reading one part at a time leading up to Christmas. Each part includes the following activities: a self-illustration guidance, a Christmas word challenge, a cut/color/glue craft, and a Christmas song. The free Activity Pack can be downloaded at www.thewholeberry.com/downloads.My hope is that you would read this story aloud to your children and encourage them to just sit and listen, allowing their imaginations to conjure up their own images based on what they are hearing. The different activities at the end of each part were chosen specifically to challenge and encourage both the creative and the logical thinking sides of the brain. While there is great value in sharing artwork/illustrations with children, there is also great value in encouraging children to be their own artist and to develop their own creative abilities. Some of the skill development encouraged with this story and its activities include: self-expression, imagination, fine motor skills, problem solving skills, visual analysis, concentration, and hand-eye coordination. Learning should be fun! read more

Many, many years ago, Santa was building his winter wonderland. He knew he needed help to make Christmas special for every child i...n the world, but he didn't know where to get it. Santa talked to his animal friends because they traveled far and wide and would be familiar with the creatures living near the North Pole. He asked the walruses, the birds, and the bears, and they knew of some wee people (elves), who loved to sing, play, and make things. Santa traveled past Aurora Falls, over Tinsel Glacier, and to the Moose Tree Forest to find the elves. He asked them if they would like to help, and they jumped for joy to be part of Santa's toy-making dream. The elves discovered the wonder of Santa's toy land, how the reindeer gained flight, and how Santa fit all those packages into one bag. This picture book for children, by author R.J. Hastings, shares the stories of Santa and how his elves became a special part of his family. read more
