Book Review: Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss

Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her.

Book Review: How to Catch Santa Claus by Alice Walstead

book review how to catch santa claus alice walstead

How to Catch Santa Claus by Alice Walstead is a children's picture book about Santa Claus delivering presents on Christmas Eve and trying to evade traps that kids have hidden in their houses to catch good old St. Nick.  Published by Sourcebooks Kids, this holiday book is due out on September 1, 2023.  A huge thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Kids for approving my request to read this book.

Having always loved the Christmas holidays, I enjoyed reading How to Catch Santa Claus as it brought back all the excitement I had as a little kid waiting for Santa Claus to visit my house and leave gifts.  As a child, I even asked my parents to stay up late and take a photo of the elusive St. Nick . . . a photo my parents gave me the day after Christmas.  Anywho, this book catches all the excitement a child might feel on Christmas Eve.  The writing was well done and the illustrations intriguing.

This is the perfect book to read with young children that they should find to be super fun and exciting.  They might even want to set their own trap to catch Santa Claus.  Five out of five stars is what I give How to Catch Santa Claus by Alice Walstead.
