    1. It's gone! :D. Thank you all & Happy Holidays!I am very excited to find this book with sweet illustrations and a friendly tale, but my review will have to wait until after the holidays :)


    2. This book is cleverly written, and adorably illustrated. Sorry, Mrs. Claus - you don't exist anymore for me. I love Santa's husband!


    3. What a total delight this book was. The illustrations by A.P. Quach are sweet and clever as anything as you'll ever see in any Christmas book, and Daniel Kibblesmith infuses this work with the perfect blend of humor and kindness. I was surprised to see some people claiming that this adorable children's book is "rewriting history" as Santa is a fictional character. And, I'm going out on a limb here, but many people think that Santa might just be your parents or people who take care of you, who ca [...]


    4. Santa's Husband, like so many things, began as a Twitter joke, but now it is a wonderful real thing: a children's book describing the life of black Santa Claus and his white husband. For the first half of the book, Daniel Kibblesmith simply tells it like it is, and I must admit, I had to fight a lot of cognitive dissonance. Reading about and seeing a black Santa and his white husband went against everything I knew about Santa Claus in every single depiction of this mythical figure I was aware of [...]


    5. This sweet, charming story is beautifully illustrated and conveys the important message that both Santas and families can come in all colors, shapes and sizes.


    6. The perfect holiday read! This book is very cute (and also quite funny) and a festive treat for the upcoming season.


    7. This charming little book deserves at least 25 stars, as I am sure you will agree when you read it. Only 31 pages, and most of those are devoted to the delightful illustrations. So hurry up, go read it! Thank you Paul Hill (and Brad) for the lovely gift!


    8. Santa is black and has a white husband. Even though “some angry people on TV will tell you that this isn’t what Santa Claus looks like—or that Santa Claus doesn’t even have a husbandople have imagined Santa Claus hi dress of different ways over the years.lThey loved each other for a long time before being able to make their life together official. They live at the North Pole which is getting warmer due to climate change. Santa’s husband helps with the preparations for Christmas and is [...]


    9. since I started at the library, I've casually read many picture books or nonfiction children's books. but this is the one I'm choosing to log on because it's just so good. I cried so there's that



    10. This is a charming book. Many kids everywhere can relate to a Santa with their skin tone and to a family that looks like theirs. It's a great gift for kids and parents alike.





    11. So I loved this book, but I don't think it's a children's book or the author doesn't know how to write a children's book. It's a series of sort of loosely connected jokes (from global warming to labor negotiations), no story, with really lovely illustrations. It has a very sweet message at the end. I really wanted this to be a children's book! I would love to put an interracial gay Santa book on the display shelf and I really wanted more of the book to carry the message of love and acceptance fr [...]


    12. Warmly recommended for kids and adults alike, because of its important message, that «Santa Claus can come in all shapes and colors and sizes—just like the children and families he visits all over the world each Christmas eve.» And also because the book is sweet and delightful.When we read the title and see the cover we tend to think that Santa Claus is the white fellow, but in fact he is only helping out his husband, even though some people get confused about this when he sits in for him at [...]


    13. Because I'm a lefty liberal who believes everyone has a right to live as they wish as long as no one is being hurt, I decided to show my support to author Daniel Kibblesmith by buying his book, Santa's Husband. In this easy-reader kid's book, Santa is an African-North Poler with a white ethnic-background-unknown husband. Together they run the family toy business, feed the reindeer, negotiate working conditions with the elven employees, eat cookies and share a kiss. The story gently suggests that [...]


    14. Okay so this is a children's book and not quite as advanced as what I have gotten used to reading. I think this book was intended for the smallest children, because it contains mostly illustrations and one or two sentences at the most on each page. The illustrations were cute and I loved the message this book was sending, both about marriage equality but also about race. This book tells children that Santa isn't necessarily white and that Santa comes in all colors and sizes, and the love between [...]


    15. This book is delightful. The people who wrote this book are delightful. The art is gorgeous (I bought some of AP's art from the advent and I haven't even received it but I'm in love already). The story is heartfelt, touching, and truly Christmasy. Of course as an LGBT person I'm gonna support anything cute like this–but also, for real, the LGBT community is often completely ignored when it comes to Christmas. This book has gotten a lot of "omg ~war on christmas~" controversy, but in reality it [...]


    16. my boyfriend and I were walking off a buzz and stopped in a bookstore. he picked it up and we started reading it together. it was so cute. I love that santa was black, and his husband helped him with his business. I loved that he takes care of his elves. I love that there's a certain "Odd" alt-R&B singer who shows up at the wedding. it was really cute, we read it right there in the store. ❤️


    17. This book, to an adult, lays it on real thick with a dark-skinned Santa and a male partner. But to my 3yo, it just all wasn't a big deal. I love having a multiplicity of Santas, and that's something that clicked with my little one too. The illustrations are adorable, and the prose is in easy bites.


    18. my kids and I loved this book. a different take on the santa story - giving space for kids to create a version of santa that fits for them. Plus santa and his husband are the cutest couple!! Great to also have a book that addresses the conversation in our house about Santa and race!


    19. This is a great book about Santa Clause. It has wonderful illustrations. It shows that their are many different types of families in the world. Love is love no matter who you are. I love this book and think everyone should read it.


    20. Totally charming holiday picture book guaranteed to make children and their progressive family members smile. The illustrations by Ashley Quach are absolutely adorable. You can look at them over and over and discover new details each time. I know, I've already read this 3 times just for the smiles.


    21. Like any good picture book, this one wraps up in a nice bow a strong message and I thought it did so well. A relationship can be whatever, but even Santa needs a strong partnership at home and in work so that he can be Jolly Old Saint Nick. Love!


    22. I just love this. Unfortunately, there is only one copy in my entire library system. I'd like to see more libraries purchase this. One of the major points of the book is that Santa Claus can look like whatever you want him to, not simply trying to shoehorn in some "liberal agenda." *eyeroll*


    23. Til og med betre enn eg hadde forventa! Innhaldet transcenderer den opphavlege gagen lett. Eg likar innhaldet og ideane i illustrasjonane litt betre enn streken, men jøss bevars. Dette blir ein sikker vinnar under juletreet!


    24. This is, perhaps, one of the cutest and sweetest Christmas stories in print today. The drawings are wonderfully done, the story is sweet, and it's appropriate for all ages! I would highly recommend it, perhaps even as a gift!


    25. This book is phenomenal! Through simple text and wonderful illustrations everyone, children and adults, can learn that families come in all different ways and it doesn't matter what they look like as long as there is love. Everyone needs a copy of this book.
