The Littlest Elf
This is the best Christmas story for kids. Oliver was an elf. He lived with his family in the North Pole. There were many elves in the Santa’s village, but Oliver was the littlest one. It was Christmas time and Oliver was excited. This year, he would discover his special job at one of Santa’s workshops. He just needed to visit each shop to see which one was the right fit.
At the toy workshop where his mom worked, Oliver tried to make cuddly teddy bears. But he got lost in the huge stuffing piles! “Oliver?” an elf asked. Oliver’s mom said, “I think you are too little for the toy workshop. Why don’t you try helping your dad at the bicycle workshop instead? Also read, The Little Christmas Tree.
So, Oliver went to Santa’s bicycle workshop. “I’m ready to help,” he said. Oliver watched as the elves added wheels and seats and handlebars and bells. But the tools were very big for Oliver’s little hands. “Maybe bakery is your special job,” his father told him. “You should visit your brother at the bakery next!”
Off Oliver went to the bakery. These elves made sugarplum cookies and candy cane squares! But when Oliver tried to stir the cookie dough, he fell into the giant mixing bowl. “Oliver, look out!” one of the elves shouted. “Sorry, Ollie!” his brother said. “You’re too little for the bakery. Maybe your special job is at the bookmaker’s shop.”
Oliver arrived at the last of the Santa’s workshops where his sister worked. The bookmakers there wrote the amazing stories and drew wonderful pictures. “Can I help?” Oliver asked. “Of course!” the elves replied. But the inkpot was too deep and the stack of papers was very tall. “Oh Ollie,” his sister cried. Bookmaking was harder and messier than it looked. You may also like, Santa’s Christmas.
Oliver wandered through the North Pole. He was sad. Oliver knew there had to be one special job he could do even if he was little. Then he heard a sound of hooves clattering at the stables. Inside, a herd of reindeer had gathered to meet Dot, the new reindeer. She was little just like Oliver.
Dot was very excited to help flying Santa’s sleigh. She practiced for the big night by jumping and hopping and leaping, but she could not fly. The reindeer’s mama gave her a gentle kiss. Dot was still too little. Dot was very sad. Oliver wanted to cheer her up. He dug in his pockets to find a treat for Dot, but instead he found little trinkets from each workshop he had visited. Just then, he had an idea!
Oliver and Dot used the tiny trinket to make the ornaments, cards and fun decorations for all the hardworking elves in the village. The littlest elf and the littlest reindeer filled the sleigh with their Christmas treats. They delivered the presents to all the workshops. The elves loved their special gifts.
Soon, Santa came to see what all the fuss was about! He watched as Oliver and Dot made everyone smile. Suddenly, Santa had an idea. “Oliver and Dot, with your big hearts and great Christmas cheer, won’t you be my very important helpers this year?” asked Santa. Oliver and Dot had found their special jobs after all! But more important, they had each found a special friend! Also, read Story Of Santa Claus.
