I remember reading this when I was a kid - or at least the illustrations are very familiar to me. The story is fairly simple - it describes Santa's workshop at the North Pole, all the different departments: dolls, games, trains, etc. The illustrations show the elves cavorting merrily with the toys while Santa laments that he doesn't have any time to enjoy the toys. The book continues with Santa making his Christmas deliveries and then stopping at his final delivery and taking time to enjoy and play with the toys he's left. It's a moderately cute story, but what really makes it enjoyable to me are the nostalgic-feeling illustrations. The book says it was illustrated by the "Walt Disney Studio" and it does look very typical of Disney. I wonder if it was ever made into an animated movie or something? It'd be perfect for a cute Christmas special.
