At the North Pole on the night before Thanksgiving, the toy making is finished and Santa is getting ready to send the elves to be with their special children all around the world. From Thanksgiving until Christmas, the elves have the pleasurable job of playing hide and seek, watching for good behavior, and reporting back to Santa every day. On Christmas Eve night, the elves move to the tree and wait for Santa to come and take them back to the North Pole. Year after year, children will recall all the fun they’ve had and look forward, with great anticipation, to the next Thanksgiving Eve and the return of their special elves. This enchanting keepsake book is the kickoff of the holiday season, and includes the story, memory pages, a songbook, and a musical treasury collection CD produced by Grammy Award–Winning music producer, J. Aaron Brown.
