A Very Corona Christmas

This year everyone has to stay home, even Santa…  What happens when world leaders cancel Christmas due to Covid19? Just as Santa decides he has no other choice but to furlough his elves until the pandemic is over, a bright, young elf brings him a letter that changes everything…  A hilarious, heartwarming story, A Very Corona Christmas weaves together all of the craziness of 2020 into a delightful story about a little elf who saves Christmas from being canceled.  Author and illustrator Kelley Donner understands that this year more than ever, children need Christmas. Full of beautiful watercolor illustrations, A Very Corona Christmas creatively shows the North Pole trying to function in the midst of a chaotic pandemic. How do elves watch children remotely? By watching children on their school video conference, of course. How does Santa adjust to lockdown? By making his own sourdough bread.  This pandemic has been tiring and we are all in need of a good laugh. A Very Corona Christmas is just what the doctor ordered for everyone this Christmas.
