Santa’s wish by Samuel Langley- Swain

We have been loving “Santa’s wish” by Samuel Langley- Swain, it is such a heart warming story!


The story begins with a family sitting down on Christmas eve to read  the book “The night before Christmas”. They do their final Christmas preparations such as hanging their stockings and leaving a carrot for Rudolph. During the night the children find Santa outside their window. He said he received their letter so he is taking them on a trip to the North Pole! He explains that he receives so many letters but theirs is the one he remembers! What was so special about their letter? What is Santa’s wish? Will his wish come true?


Such a lovely story that brings the heart of what Christmas should really be about!

The story is written in a lovely rhyme which makes it fun to read. I think it is a lovely story which you could read as a family and think about how you could show love this Christmas time.

Happy festive reading everyone! x
