How Santa Got His Job

— feeling big smile
How Santa Got His Job - Stephen Krensky

Santa Claus didn't always deliver toys; he was a chimney sweep, and a chef first! This cute little story tells the tale of how Santa got his job delivering toys. The book earned a score of AD380L on the Lexile scale, but the language is not very difficult, and can be used with 4-6th graders. This would be a good book to teach sequencing and order of events to a class. Students can follow how one job led to another, leading up to his final job. It's an interesting read, and is enjoyable any time of the year.
