Santa and the Three Bears
By Dominic Catalano

Review by: Lori Plach

     Sharing, giving and celebrating togetherness are very key elements people think of during the Holiday season. Dominic Catalano presents this twist on an old familiar story known to young and old.
     After Santa Claus leaves on his annual journey with his trusty silver compass, Mrs. Claus puts her plans into action. She and her three helpers set out all the food prepared for the surprise party. The foursome leaves in search of the perfect Christmas tree. Nearby the famous bear family finds themselves lost on the cold winter night. They come upon an inviting house... the home of Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Much to their delight, they open the door and find a crackling fire in the fireplace and a table laden with scrumptious cakes, cookies, punch, salads and fruits. Papa Bear is intrigued by the world map hanging above the fireplace, while Mama Bear dons the stockings which were hung on the mantle. Baby Bear eats his fill of the delectable food. They enter the workshop and amuse themselves with the glue and paints. They find chairs in the den, Baby Bear discovers that he is too large and breaks all 3 small chairs. They all curl up on the large bed and fall asleep.
      Mrs. Claus and her three helpers come home with a beautiful tree and discover that they have uninvited guests. Quickly, Mrs. Claus puts
everyone including the bears to work making more food, re-hanging the
stockings, cleaning and trimming the tree. Santa arrives home and is
pleasantly surprised. When no presents are found for the Bear Family,
Santa gives them all a gift which is sure to delight them. Papa Bear
receives a silver compass so he won't get lost ever again. Mama Bear
loves the new winter coat given to her. Baby Bear gets excited when he
sees his brand new sled.
     Lessons that can be learned through Santa and the Three Bears are
plentiful. First of all, by using a familiar family working together with
Mrs. Claus, children will learn that working together, works gets done
faster and everyone can share in the fun. Children will be visually
stimulated by the large book "Naughty or Nice", the portrait of Rudolph
and the water globe with the three bear figurines inside sitting on the
mantle. This book is sure to add warmth and holiday cheer to your home.
