This book has been very special to me throughout my childhood and beginning my adult years. It was read to me as a kindergartener and I have loved it ever since. It teaches a child to think creatively and to have an open mind to possibilities that they may have never thought about. If I was to use it in a classroom it would be around with winter holidays and in K-2. Any higher and I feel as thought the students will have started to lose interest in Santa Claus and things of that nature.
