Jingles is able to help Santa deliver gifts in the end because he is able to sound the words out. This is a great book to help encourage kids to learn to read and not give up.
I would recommend this book to kids around ages 4-7, especially for kids who are learning how to read. The book itself isn't an early reader book, but it's meant to be read by an adult to help encourage kids to learn to read.
Story starts with North Pole and Santa and his eyes are just tired, he can't read his wish list...
Words for me are tiny, 12 point? and not able to enlarge the letters on the screen.
Jingles starts to help as he knows all his letters but he's not quite sure how to put them all together into words.
When he gives up Santa comes to the rescue...
It will be a nice Christmas for all.
I honestly believe that every kid (ages 6 upwards) deserves to read this story.

I found this tale to be so wonderfully cute. It emphasized that struggles can be hard, but we can learn to overcome them. Not knowing how to read is tough, but it is a skill the little ones can master! Sounding out the words and taking your time can be a big help when learning how to read. This book brings positivity to this topic, and it was also just so cute and sweet as a Christmas tale. I would highly recommend picking this book up for your little ones.
I absolutely adore the illustrations. They are fun, colourful and totally fit the whimsical nature of this Christmas story.
Four out of five stars!
