    Must have/read for military families with children!

    Our three boys love reading this around Christmas... The fact that they (we!) can relate to the story make it even more enjoyable for them and the positive story line portrays a happy image of life as a soldier in the midst of a sometimes hard lifestyle.

    A great story!

    I bought this book while my husband was deployed to Iraq over the holidays. I also was working in an elementary school on post where we had many Dad's deployed that year. The kids loved the book as much as I did. It is great for getting kids talking about a deployed parent too!

    Wonderfully appropriate for military families with young children

    I bought this classic story, set in an Army camp, for my grandson, whose daddy is in the Army. The whole family loved it. My grandson is only 3, so he enjoyed having this wonderful story read to him numerous times over the holidays. Now that his daddy has been deployed to Iraq, it is even more special because he understands that Santa doesn't forget those soldiers like his daddy.

    A lovely THANK YOU to OUR SOLDIERS!!

    When I first started reading, I thought this might not come off too well...but quickly I was proven wrong. This book is a great way for parents to talk with their children about the soldiers who are guarding our freedom! Frankly, as an American benefitting from our soldiers' guardianship--it was a great reminder to me!! This is book we can all take a critical message from--and it is done in a charming wonder-filled way. Thank you to the authors!
