Blue, Blue Christmas - Anna Coddington
Forget the woolly jumpers, yule logs and snow, this kid is going to show Santa Claus how we do Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere - with sunglasses, beach cricket, surfing and barbecues!
Does Santa realise it's actually very hot here at Christmas time? What if he overheats in his red suit while delivering presents?
"Santa! It's urgent! I'm not sure if you know -
down here Christmas is in summer!
It's blue, blue skies and if you get fried
in that suit it'll be a bummer."
While everybody is geting ready for Christmas, one kid is worried. Does Santa know it's summer in the southern hemisphere? What if he overheats? She decides to send him a message. If the big guy gets her invitation, she'll show him how much fun a blue, blue Christmas can be!
A charming and funny story about how we celebrate Christmas in Aotearoa with words and music to sing along with by acclaimed musician Anna Coddington and illustrations by award-winning Story Hemi-Morehouse.
