E is for Elves and Emerson

As papa elf puts it in the movie Elf,

“There are only three jobs available to an elf.

The first is making shoes at night,

you can bake cookies in a tree

…The third job…it’s the profession that every elf aspires to. And that is to build toys in Santa’s workshop.”

What would the Christmas season be without Santa’s little helpers?

Here are my picks for books featuring these amazing little creatures:

starting with the classic:

The elves and the shoemaker

retold from the Brothers Grimm and illustrated by Jim LaMarche

The cookie business was referring to the Keebler cookie company

and to be one of Santa’s little helper is in fact the most seeker job for an elf!

Here are my picks:

The Lost Christmas Gift

by Andrew Beckham

This beautiful story grabbed my heart as soon as I started reading it. It is one story I chose to read slowly to make it last longer. This story was a Christmas gift written from a father to his son. It took 60 years to get to its destination. What a story it is!
