Edward is great at counting and reciting the alphabet, but he struggles when it comes to reading. After reading a bedtime story with his father on Christmas Eve, Edward falls asleep and dreams that he joins Santa as he delivers presents through the night. Slowly but surely, Edward sounds out the words in Santa's trusty book of names and eventually learns to read. In the morning, he wakes from his dream and discovers a present from Santa--a very special gift that Edward can read to his parents.
