There's Elf Fun for the entire family when Christopher Pop-In-Kins and his sister Christina Marie "pop in" for a holiday visit.  These elves have been chosen by Santa to visit the Children's World throughout the holiday season.  They love to play hide-and-seek and share in the spirit of Christmas.

These storybooks are a great way to introduce your children to Christopher or Christina Marie and the Pop-In-Kins tradition.  Soon your Pop-In-Kins elf "pops in" and the elf fun begins!
