"A multiple award winning title and one good reason for this is its inclusiveness, and nonjudgmental approach. Santa stories and legends are presented as a part of a rich tapestry of human experience, to be treasured, savored and understood as a guide to finding goodness and magic in ourselves and others... a perfect tool for discussion between parents and children." - MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW "a must-have for every parent..." -READER'S FAVORITE "Boorn's debut children's book brings the legend of Santa Claus to life through clever interpretation, alluring illustrations and skilled storytelling. Beautiful illustrations... strengthen the sweet message. A book that families will look forward to revisiting each holiday season." -KIRKUS REVIEW
