"Ho, ho ho!" laughs Santa. "Merry Christmas, Tampa!"
My Review
Cover: The book is very colorful. I know this is supposed to be a children's book, but the color and the title just captured my attention. This book is a children's picture book. I bought it because I didn't have any Christmas books and thought these were cute. I will save them for when I have little ones of my own.

Things that I liked: I really enjoyed that the author was so accurate with locations or parks, and names of everything he mentioned throughout the story. I loved the illustrations as well.

Things that I didn't like: Nothing in this category. I loved it.

Overall: I highly recommend it to anyone who has little ones and are looking for books to share with them close to the Christmas holiday season. I rated this a 5 out of 5 stars. 

Until next time, Happy Reading!
