By Carol Aebersold, Illustrated by Coe Steinwart
This cleverly rhymed children's book explains that Santa knows who is naughty and/or nice because he sends a scout elf to every home! The elf watches the children's behavior and reports it back to Santa each night. By morning the elf returns to its assigned home and hides in a different location, allowing the children to play a delightful hide-and-seek game. Based on author Carol Aebersold's own family tradition from the 1970s, this book comes with its very own elf doll enabling others to begin this fun-filled Christmas tradition themselves!
The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition includes: an exquisite hardcover children's book - illustrated by award winning artist Coe Steinwart, a vintage-style pixie elf doll, and a certificate commemorating the adoption of the elf by a family, teacher, or other group. Additionally, this unique gift includes a festive keepsake box for convenient storage. The purchase of The Elf on the Shelf allows you to give more than a gift. Instead, you are giving a priceless treasure...the creation of lasting memories.
