Santa and Mrs. Claus are ready for their own vacation. After a busy holiday season all around the world, Santa can’t wait to spend time with Mrs. Claus and have some fun. But with the whole planet at their fingertips, where will they go and what will they do?

My Thoughts
I’ve previously reviewed Where Do Unicorns Go On Vacation and Where Do Dinosaurs Go On Vacation by the same author. So, when I got the opportunity to review Where Does Santa Go on Vacation I jumped at it. Here are my pros and cons for Where Does Santa Go on Vacation:


  1. As with the other books in this series, it is targeted at children ages 3 to 8 years old. I think it is perfect for that age group, but I think the younger children will particularly like it.
  2. It is written in verse and the rhymes flow very well. The kids will enjoy the sing-song tempo.
  3. The illustrations by Nejla Shojaie are fantastic as always.
  4. The best thing about this book is seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus wearing clothes other than their traditional red Christmas outfits! You will see them in jeans, Bermuda shorts, tank tops, bandanas, t-shirts, sunglasses, yoga pants, and baseball caps as they appear in various vacation spots. I think kids will get a kick out of this!


  1. The books are getting a bit repetitive for me. The concept is exactly the same in each book. This is purely an adult criticism, because kids won’t mind about that one bit.

This is another delightful entry in the “Go On Vacation” series. I think this would be a great holiday/Christmas gift for the children in your life. Plus, if you ever see a white-whiskered man in shorts with a belly that shakes like bowl fully of jelly… you can ask your kids if they think it is actually Santa on vacation!
