A Christmas Wish by Lori Evert, Photographs by Per Breiehagen

A delightful story about a little, red-capped girl, Anja. The little girl lives far up North and longs to be one of Santa’s helpers. One day she sets off on the long journey to the North Pole. Along the way, she meets many animals: a red cardinal, polar bear, reindeer and others who, one by one, take turns leading her farther and farther north. The story is told in dreamlike photographs of the author’s daughter Anja, in Norwegian dress, set against a vast snowy landscape. A perfect bedtime (or anytime) story, especially as Christmas approaches! Ages 3-7+
