My thoughts
I have not read the other books in the Night Night series, but this book can be read as a standalone. I read this book to my six month old grandson.  He loved holding the book and seeing the bright colors.  The story was cute to read to your little one and they learn a lesson while enjoying storytime.  This is one of his first Christmas books and may be to become a tradition to read it each year,

What will children do when a sluggish Slothy Claus doesn't make it to their home in time for Christmas morning? This charming story helps kids learn that Christmas is about more than just presents under the tree.

Slothy Claus has lots of presents for good boys and girls this year, but how is this notoriously lethargic animal supposed to travel all around the world in just one night? You guessed it! Slothy takes his sweet time, and when kids wake up to empty stockings and bare trees, it feels like Christmas is ruined! How will they ever find happiness without their chocolates and toys?

Slothy Claus is equal parts humorous and heartwarming. Children ages 4 to 8 will

  • learn that the joy of Christmas doesn't come from material things but from the love between family and friends
  • enjoy the delightfully funny one-of-a-kind artwork
  • love the classic rhyme that will fill your own family's Christmas with love, laughter, and a spirit of giving

Slothy Claus concludes with a summer scene complete with flip flops and a barbecue when Slothy Claus finally flies down in his sleigh to deliver gift after gift--for a special celebration of Christmas in July. With a bright, glittery cover, this fun picture book is the perfect gift for advent or Christmas.

My thoughts
What a cute book to read to your little one. I loved Slothy Clause. The pictures were nice and bright so my little grandson enjoyed looking at the pictures.  This one will be one that we read for many Christmases to come.
