Santa Claus is Coming to a City, Country, Province, or State Near You Books
Santa Claus is coming to town has always been one of my favorite Christmas song, Christmas TV show, and story. I even think at one point I sang the song in a 2nd grade chorus concert. The lines to the song are some of the ones I have never forgotten such as "You better watch out, you better not cry" and "he's making a list, checking it twice".
Recently at a book fair at my daughter's school, I found a series of books written by Steve Smallman and illustrated by Robert Dunn that brings Santa to almost every city and state in the United States, Canada, and many other countries around the world. The book fair had the following three books, Santa is Coming to Illinois, Santa is Coming to Chicago, and Santa is Coming to Naperville. Each book features Santa flying over various landmarks in the city or town that is being featured. And once they hear the landmark in the book, bringing them by the landmark they just read about becomes a unique experience for everyone.
Searching Amazon I found over 100 different Santa is coming to your town books including, Santa is Coming to Boston or London or California or the Carolinas or the Smokey Mountains or Texas or Colorado or Denver or Green Bay. These books are great gifts on Christmas Eve for pre-schoolers who are learning about Santa Claus and how he determines who is naughty and who is nice.
