Review: I Saw Santa's Underpants by Bobbie Hinman


Genre: Children's (4-8)
Published: September 22, 2022
Pages: 39

When Santa has an unfortunate mishap, a young boy and his dog are shocked by what they see.
He will need ingenuity to figure out how to help Santa out of this embarrassing situation.

A laugh-out-loud funny children's picture book that:
  • Demonstrates problem solving at its best
  • Provides opportunities for family bonding
  • Utilizes fun rhymes to help children develop reading skills
Grab yours now and start a new Christmas tradition.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This was a fun little rhyming story that had almost a Night Before Christmas vibe to it for me. I think most kids imagine catching Santa in the act, but this particular child gets to see way more than he bargained for. And it was nice that his immediate instinct was to help Santa out. 

The illustrations had a timeless, classic feel to them, but were still plenty bright and colorful to draw the attention of young eyes. And I wouldn't have hated reading this book to my children a few times at least. 

Overall I give this 4.2 out of 5 stars. - Katie
