Our Review

Finding Santa: The Adventure of Greedy Elf is the perfect holiday treat!

Finding Santa: The Adventure of Greedy Elf is a delightful children’s Christmas picture book written by Ellie Elf, Santa’s photographer. The story follows a greedy elf named Gus who works as a toymaker in Santa’s workshop. He was such a good worker that Santa invited him to deliver toys with him one Christmas. On their very first delivery, greedy elf discovers a broken toy of a child and decides that he didn’t t want to give toys to children anymore. He wants to keep every toy for himself. He starts to strategize his plan with the winter wizard. Using magic, Greedy Elf shrinks Santa and takes over the workshop. Just when the greedy Elf thinks his plan is successful, Lucy, a tiny pixie comes to Santa’s rescue. She follows Greedy Elf when he is busy putting clues along the path. Will Lucy be able to solve the puzzle and help Santa escape? Grab a copy today and help find Santa and break the wizard’s spell!

Greedy Elf

Charming and beautifully illustrated, Finding Santa: The Adventure of Greedy Elf delivers an interesting story in a delightful and unique fashion. The photo style pictures are extremely charming and remarkable. To make it more interesting for young readers, the story is heavily sprinkled with pictures and clue cards to keep the young readers engaged. It is very well thought out and the pictures have amazing details.

The thing I love most about this book is that it comprises a wide variety of puzzles that are short, precise and easy for kids to read and understand. It will challenge and enrich kids mind and will help them to indulge in more of reading. It is a kind of exercise for the brain too. Another fun activity to do with this book would be to turn it onto a board game and have fun playing the game with your family! Filled with beautiful photograph style pictures and fun riddles, Finding Santa promises to liven up any boring day!

The other thing I love about the book is the message it sends out to kids by showing that greedy Elf is in Santa’s timeout because he did the wrong thing by betraying him, however, Santa decided to give him a second chance. What an adorable way to introduce children to learning forgiveness -one of the many great values small children should learn early.

Final Verdict

This is an excellent book on forgiveness with great, colorful artwork and a fun storyline. I highly recommend it for ages 3-8.
