Review Quotes

"Each page will leave readers hungry for cookies and curious to try new confections. An author's note and nine recipes are appended. A mouthwatering choice for classrooms and libraries." -School Library Journal "Vibrant, glowing illustrations show children of different ethnic groups along with cultural traditions and decorations. The Christmas-cookie traditions of 32 countries (or sometimes a city or a state) are each described in a short paragraph, including the type of cookie, local name for Santa, and fun, related Christmas customs that will interest children . . . A delightful introduction to a popular Christmas treat and traditions around the world." --Kirkus "Furman's first children's book takes readers on an appetizing world tour of Christmas traditions, highlighting the treats children leave for Santa and his regional counterparts..." --Publishers Weekly "Charmingly illustrated throughout by Susan Gal, 'A World of Cookies for Santa' is a truly multicultural celebration that families will return to year after year."--Midwest Book Review --
