About the Author
Eric Hansen is a first generation Danish-American. He was born in Philadelphia while his immigrant parents were on their way from Denmark to a new life in southern California. He grew up in Santa Maria, California and now resides in Reno, Nevada. As a former corporate leader, Eric was a firm believer in enabling people to realize their full potential. This is reflected in IAN, CEO, NORTH POLE.
Great for parents who are interested in getting their kids something to read that isn't just fun, but also has some really cool facts and trivia in it!
This is a fairly slow read, especially considering the age range, but it was also a really good read that kept my attention. The information about various cultures, and the way in which Ian followed it and learned about it was super interesting, and the author did a great job of making this a learning experience without completeing halting the book to do so.
Ian is a fantastic character, and I loved how curious he was in trying to find out more about the world. I think there could have been a little bit more going on in the plot, but all in all I thought it was exceptionally well put together.
This was certainly worth 5-stars from me, becuase I think kids will be better off for having read this book, which isn't always the case with kids books. I enjoy holiday stories, so I'm glad I found this one!
Early in his career at the North Pole, Ian is unaware of the impact that Christmas and Santa Claus have on the citizens of the world. However, he soon finds out that it really doesn’t matter what country you call you own or whether you practice a religion, or not. It’s likely that you’ll find youself celebrating a special version of the holiday season. And in so doing you might just be served by Santa, or one of his man helpers around the world.
Ian, being very bright, is called upon to help Santa keep up with what’s going on in a rapidly changing world. He loves the challenge and excels in his new role. He soon finds himself asked to accompany Santa and the reindeer on Christmas Eve. What happens during that fateful evening will go down in history!
