Secret Santa
Secret Santa: with audio recording | Margaret McNamara
836 posts | 3 read | 3 to read
The Robin Hill School first-graders celebrate the spirit of Christmas in this holiday-themed Level 1 Ready-to-Read story with audio. It is Secret Santa Day at school, and Katie is wearing her special Christmas sweater. But Andrew makes fun of her outfit, calling the reindeer on the sweater a raccoon. When it comes time to pick names from the Santa hat, Katie hopes she doesnt pick Andrews name. But she does! How can Katie give Andrew a gift when hes been so mean to her?

I got these lovely gifts from my secret Santa via Amazon. But I don‘t know who my secret Santa is! Amazon revealed the person‘s name but that name doesn‘t show up in a Litsy search. And nothing has a Litsy handle! Help! I want to properly thank my secret Santa! #wintergames #tmskellington @crimson613 @clwojick @staycurious

Curly_Reader Omg I‘m sorry the card was returned to me, and I had to resend it out!! It was meee!!! Lmaooo 2y
Texreader @Curly_Caffeinated_Reader yay!!! Thank you so much! I do love the books you picked and the bookmark! It was very special and you made for a sweet if mysterious Christmas! 2y

Thank you so much for my surprise package @Gissy ! How truly thoughtful and generous for you to think of me on your D.C. trip and select such lovely souvenirs! The mug is terrific, and everything from the Library of Congress is perfect because they are all about books! 😊The magnet, wood block, and bookmark - love them! I read all the brochures right away. 😄 The postcard is gorgeous - I thought at first it was a print! ⬇️

mabell I love the little box from Puerto Rico! It is so special you send a treasure from your home. 😊I'm so glad I now have an autumn book sleeve, yay! And the books!!! I'll be careful not to leave the poison book lying around - I don't want to worry Chris. 😂 I can't wait to read all the terrific Christmas mysteries you've given me! I just have to decide which to read first! 😂😄 4y

@Gissy Ahhhh!!! A surprise package!!!!! 😱😱😳😳😊😊😊

Is it ok to open it? (Not that I could wait...) 😅😄

Chrissyreadit Is this your #sss? 4y
mabell @Chrissyreadit No, I didn't join in the swap, so it's a total surprise! 😊 4y
Gissy @mabell this is a surprise box. You can open it. It is just a detail! I guess my match also received hers since I sent both boxes the same day @Chrissyreadit 4y
Gissy I hope you like some souvenirs i chose for you while I was in Washington. It is a way to say thank you for the package you sent me! I hope that motivates you and your husband to visit that state. 4y
mabell @Gissy I LOVED it!!! I was just able to open it (holiday busyness already), so I am posting right now. I absolutely want to visit even more now, and I know Chris won't take much convincing! 😄 4y

Secret Santa at work is coming oddly late, for constant -20 weather shopping in the upcoming week, with $20. Do recommend any gift ideas, gender-neutral as 'going to anybody'. I'm not quite sure on bookish gifts, but can definitely have a look in the Chapters gift trinkets section. All while I'm still picking up my own holiday cash book gifts. 🎁

JacqMac I love the selection of cups at Chapters. And the fuzzy blankets and cushions and reading socks and mittens and candles.... everything really. Lol Have fun shopping. 4y
AlobelThee @JacqMac Cups are a great idea. We all got a Canada 150 mug at the restaurant. 🍁 4y

To my secret Santa! Thank you for everything! I absolutely love it!!! I‘m sorry it took forever for me to post, I was barely home for holidays, but it definitely arrived on time. I was only able to open it the other day! Thank you for being so generous!!! Happy New Year!!!

Traveler13 Yay! My PO was terrible so I was super worried it had gone astray. 4y

Doesn‘t look like I am getting a #secretsantagoespostal #wintersolsticebookexchange package. Haven‘t received anything or notice from the person and he/she isn‘t responding to the hosts. Oh well! I hope whoever got me is alright with what may be going on in their life but also hoping this isn‘t a grinch situation. Anyways I had a lot of fun shopping and seeing all the post!

Am wondering if I should ask for specific books in the next secret Santa book exchange....

Betty There was a survey before @ssgp that asked "top five wished for books". Can also specify to look at TBR here on Litsy or have a special folder on Goodreads. 4y
melissajayne @Betty I created a book wish list shelf and will give that link when signing up for a secret Santa exchange. 4y

@PolaroidPoet girl she was excited! Haha not all show how much but she loved the books especially the peculiar children (I love this series) and all the goodies!!!! From our stay in Germany those happy hippos received a very happy welcome!! Hahaha! Thank you guys so much!!!!! #secretsantakids

PolaroidPoet @Pennington.K yay! I‘m glad it made it. You had mentioned she ‘might‘ like horror so I sent one horror book I let my daughter read when she was younger. It‘s an older book, but written for youth, so I put a note inside for her to check with you before actually reading it. I never read it and can‘t speak on its behalf. 4y
Pennington.K Hey @PolaroidPoet she LOVED the book!! She said she wants to watch the movie haha! Although there is a ton of differences she ate it up over a couple days!!! Thank you! 4y

Boy, is my face red! My Texas family told me they sent me a bunch of Christmas presents from Amazon....and not to open them before Christmas. So I didn‘t! And, amongst the Amazon packages were a couple from my Secret Santa! I had no idea, and the packages all came on the same day. So, they were opened this morning. Thanks so much! I love it all. #secretsantagoespostal #wintersolsticebookexchange

Sharni thank you for the wonderful #secretsanta gifts! I love everything! The ornament is already on the tree. The kids are fascinated by the idea of Christmas in summer. My birthday is on St Patrick‘s day, so my family wakes me up with The Unicorn Song. Since I was a little girl. It‘s also my first book sleeve.❤️ The books are perfect. I‘m going to start reading Soulless today. With a new bookmark. 😘 Happy Holidays!

DebinHawaii I'm in love with the bookmark! 💜Soulless and the series are such fun. Happy Holidays to you! 🎄 (edited) 5y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag I couldn‘t resist Summer Santa when I saw him 😂 if they are really fascinated we have an Aussie version of Jingle Bells (the film clip is a bit dated but we used to sing it at school Christmas concerts) https://youtu.be/OnJ8jsw4BSo 5y

@mrsmarch Sorry to ruin the surprise of your match, but I have no idea now when your package is going to arrive. I got a ‘delayed‘ notice after the delivery day and time had already passed. I‘m so sorry I didn‘t get it to you in time but hopefully it will arrive soon! I just wanted you to know that there is a package on its way, lost somewhere between KY and MA. 😔 #secretsantagoespostal #wintersolsticebookexchange

mrsmarch Oh dear!!! There‘s something ominous about all the consecutive updates at 12:54 pm... I signed up for tracking updates so I‘ll know when it starts to move. I‘ve never had good luck with the Cincinnati mail hub... ❤️❤️❤️🚐📦📭 5y

This Secret Santa has been a total bust for me. I was given an incomplete address for my gIftee, and the package seems to be stuck in the receiving town even though both I and the UPS store put in a change of address for it. I don‘t know what else to do! And I never received a package at all. I‘ll be in the corner whimpering.

MrBook Wow! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙌🏻 5y
Li_21 Did you really?!? It was fun shopping for you. Stalking you made me realize that we like/read some of the same books. I bought a new book yesterday that I wish I added to to your box. But there's always next time! Let me know how the new King book is! 5y
