bad thing It did get preachy, as a lot of environmental awareness stories can Still, it s an important enough message that however you get talking about itI liked the illustrations, very smooth and swirling.The real reason I marked it down was the feel of it It starts as a typical storybook kids of story, but then as Santa discovers the problem, there s actually an explanation of global warming and the heavy handed message of The Environment Is Breaking And Children Are The Future Who Need To Change Our World The scientific explanation felt out of place, honestly And who is the target audience supposed to be The little guys who d pick up a picture book with Santa on the cover are likely going to loose interest when it turns into not a Christmas story And the older ones who d actually appreciate the message and recognize their own ability to make positive changes are probably not going to impulsively grab a book like this off the shelf And either way, it needs to be read in a setting where there can be lots of discussion between child and reader parent, teacher, librarian, etc Would definitely be harder for the storytimes I run, simply based on my average age and number of attendees.In short, a bit above average Like I said, I enjoy the illustrations It s a cute idea and tackles an important subject However, the execution seems awkward and a bit forced Not just a story that opens a subject to discussion, but one that necessitates the discussion in order to understand the story This environmental themed picture book has Santa discovering a leak in his workshop and learning about climate change Santa appeals to the kids of the world to come up with a solution, as they are the future of our world, and the book concludes on a hopeful note with various kids coming up with ways to reduce energy and fossil fuel usage The illustrations have a unique, whimsical quality The message is important, no doubt, but the conclusion seems to be a bit of a cop out and placing a bit to This environmental themed picture book has Santa discovering a leak in his workshop and learning about climate change Santa appeals to the kids of the world to come up with a solution, as they are the future of our world, and the book concludes on a hopeful note with various kids coming up with ways to reduce energy and fossil fuel usage The illustrations have a unique, whimsical quality The message is important, no doubt, but the conclusion seems to be a bit of a cop out and placing a bit too harsh of a burden on kids, and the rather heavy handed messaging is likely to provoke a sarcastic reaction from some, which we re already seeing in other reviews.What bothered me, however, is the fact that this is another global warming book that ignores the second leading cause of climate change and the aspect over which we have the most control in our everyday lives diet specifically, animal agriculture On the final page, we have examples of kids making small changes to help the planet even a kid who convinced a parent to choose to buy a hybrid vehicle, which is no small or cheap ask Where is the Julie convinced her family to have Meat Free Mondays or William chooses veggieburgers instead of meat based burgers So message heavy I was laughing out loud Two things aren t real in this story Santa gives helpful tips to kids can do to help our planet I ll maybe use in April for Earth Day Wanted to read Christmas story and this was the only available ebook that was not checked out at my library. I would not consider this a Christmas story, even though it involves Santa It starts with a note from the author saying she wanted a non scary way to teach her children about global warming My 9 year old enjoyed itthan my 5 year old As a parent, I liked that the end had ideas for children to help the earth. When global warming makes the North Pole start to melt, Santa decides he must do something about it He consults the super smart children of the world who all makes lots of tiny changes and save the day I really like the illustrations, but wonder if the message is too scary The books itelf was also constructed using green methods.
