Celebrate The Holiday Season With Santa Bruce+ Giveaway #SantaBruceBook

*DISCLOSURE* Disney Book Group is partnering with me for a giveaway.  All thoughts are strictly my own.

This year has really flown by! Fall is practically here and before you know it, it'll be Halloween.  The holiday season is truly around the corner and the days of 2018 are numbered.  Over the next few months, people will begin to get into the holiday spirit and have a lot to celebrate and be thankful for. It's always fun to get kids into the joys of the season and what better way to do so then with a themed book?

Santa Bruce is a children's book written by author and illustrator Ryan T. Higgins.  Bruce is a lot of things including a bear, and a decent cook.  It's safe to say that he is a grump too since he does not enjoy the holidays.  One thing that Bruce is not is Santa Claus.  Thanks to a case of mistaken identity, the whole forest has lined up to give him their Christmas wishes.  This bear just cannot catch a break and children will enjoy the story.


I'm lucky that Scarlett is an avid reader.  Whenever a new book enters through our front door, she's always interested.  She's at an age where she now knows who Santa is and has questions about him.

From the moment I showed Scarlett the book meant for ages 3+, she was very interested.  The front cover is filled with vividly drawn animals and one very angry and frustrated bear! She thought his mad face was funny and I knew she'd be drawn into the story.

The illustrations on each page fill the entire page and are very detailed.  Poor Bruce can't seem to shake the fact that all of the forest animals want him to be excited for Christmas when all he wants to do is be alone and sleep.  He finally gives in and becomes Santa Bruce for one night, doing the job of Santa and delivering presents to all of the forest animals.  All of the animals are thrilled with Bruce's holiday spirit and celebrate with a big dinner.  Bruce just wants it all to be over so he can get back to his regular life.

The book is certainly unlike any I've ever seen or read before.  Children will be captivated throughout the entire book wondering what happens next. Scarlett enjoyed all of Santa Bruce's bad luck and was laughing throughout it.  She also wanted Santa Bruce to deliver presents to her on Christmas, but I said that wouldn't be happening!

If you're looking for a new holiday tradition with to have with your young children, why not have hot cocoa and cookies on Christmas Eve while reading this book? It can surely become a yearly tradition that everyone will look forward to.  Make sure the cookies are chocolate chip and freshly baked to ensure a crowd-pleasing response!

The holiday season is full of magic and joy and it only comes around once per year.  It's never too early or too late to start traditions that will bring smiles and joy with long lasting memories.

  86. My posts keep timing out - sorry if this is repeating. With our wee ones growing so quickly it is nice to see how determined they are in what they say as being the fact. They all like to read or be read to so this will be enjoyed by all and I am certain that their will be new facts told about this story that we may or may not have read.
