A delightful holiday story, SantaSaurus tells the tale of a Christmas dinosaur who saved the Holiday Spirit. It was Christmas at the North Pole, but Santa Claus was feeling blue. Was he the only one who remembered, “It’s good deeds that make the Holiday Spirit strong?”
Luckily, SantaSaurus remembered, too! He flew all over to bring back a list of good deeds to share with Santa Claus. “Soon the list was long as a river, long as a rainbow!” And best of all, the list made everyone remember “how good children are and how much love is in their hearts.” SantaSaurus gives us a fanciful reminder of the true reason for the season.
