The Longest Christmas List Ever

Submitted by Tess from Lexington Park!
If there's one thing our library never seems to run out of, it's books about the Christmas holiday! Ask your librarians to suggest some titles if you're feeling overwhelmed. One of my favorites is The Longest Christmas List Ever by Gregg and Evan Spiridellis. Meet Trevor--a precocious young boy who couldn't be more excited to open presents Christmas morning! Santa Claus got him everything he asked for! But, oh no! He forgot one important thing! A fluffy brown puppy! So Trevor decides to start his letter to Santa early. He writes it all year long. Every time he thinks of another thing he needs, he jots it down. Soon the list is 500 feet long, and to mail it will cost 6 trillion dollars! Trevor decides to downsize, but it's too late! He's missed Santa's deadline! "What was I thinking? Where was my head? I asked for too much--I'll get nothing instead!" he laments. But when he wakes up in the morning, there's a puppy there waiting for him! Mom and Dad must have gotten a letter off to Santa in the meantime, and Trevor learns "It takes love--not toys--to bring Christmas cheer." See this book listed in our catalog
