Story Snug Advent: S is for Santa to the Rescue!

S is for Santa to the Rescue!

We absolutely love Santa to the Rescue! It’s bright, bold and colourful and has lots of little flaps to open and peek inside! Cute woodland animals help Santa prepare for Christmas and there’s a fantastic pop up Christmas scene on the final page.

Santa to the Rescue! - Story SnugThe Story: Badger receives a letter from Santa Claus. The Bears of Misteltoe Mountain are stranded and Santa needs the woodland animals’ help. The animals are very excited at the thought of meeting Santa and race to his grotto where they help him to wrap presents, make decorations and prepare a Christmas feast. Then they all fly to Misteltoe Mountain where Mrs Bear invites them to join the bears for their Christmas feast.
