    I know that I had read this book as a child and yet I am still not quite sure as a Disney child where this fits into actual Disney. Was it ever a short that Disney came up with such as with their "Wintery Wonderland" or was this just an authorized book as they needed more Christmassy events in the profile? Don't know if I will get an answer on this. The other thing is that this book is quite interesting if the way that it reads. First of all the reader is given a chance to follow the story and then afterwards is required to become interactive. The book says this is the doll room but doesn't describe what each of the elves is doing thus allowing for parents to discuss the various activities and then onto the next page where you repeat it with another department. Something else that caught my eye with this book is the combination of art illustrations. Some of the pieces such as the toys, the reindeers and other such items are realistically drawn that although maybe a bit out of proportion they could still have come from real life and then you have the opposites with the Clauses and the elves where there are elements that make them look a bit cartoonish. Although the result is a bit on the strange side it fits the book. All in all it is a quick and entertaining read that will allow you to get your children ready for the Christmas traditions that you may post as a family.

    Oh my goodness, Goodreads is awesome if it has this book on it! This is one of my all-time favorite picture books. My copy was so well-loved that I had to buy a back-up copy for whenever I have kids. :) The old-fashioned illustrations have a quality that no one now could duplicate. I absolutely love it.

    I remember this fondly from my childhood, so I was excited to find it. The illustrations are lovely.

    We had this book when we were little and I recently bought a copy and read it again. I think I only like it so much for the good memories.

    My sister and I didn't just read the Christmas themed Little Golden Books at Christmas, we read them all year. Did we have some kind of book or reading addiction?

    Christmas time books always put a smile on my face. Walt Disney always did it best.

    I remember this book growing up and was excited to read it to my kids. I wasn't as impressed the second time around. I thought it was kind of wordy and didn't really flow very well. The illustrations are the best part. However, the kids enjoyed it, so I liked it. On another note, I remember the Disney short cartoon and loved that, it's a classic.

    It is an adorable story. Yes I have two of these books. One is dated 1978 and is blue. I purchased this one for my daughter's 6th Christmas in 1987. I do not know the year it was actually printed. It is a very cute book. Our older boys were 4, 5 and 6 when we purchased the older book.

    I suspect that this is one of those things that I thought was the coolest thing ever as a child, and then could never remember enough about it to find it as an adult. I sort of remember reading it a couple dozen times.

    I wish the rhyming were more consistent throughout the book. Nice artwork, but the elves need more diversity.

    Nt spectacular. Kind of on the same level as television Christmas specials such as Frosty and Rudolph.

    This is one of my all-time favorite Christmas books for younger readers. I love the illustrations, the story is simple but enjoyable, and it just leaves me with nice, warm, fuzzy feelings.

    One of my favorite Little Golden Books. Did I read it as a child? Probably, but not sure. Certainly read it to my daughter in the late 1970s/early 1980s and to grandchildren in this century.
