    Great gift for a mom

    I ordered this not realizing that it would be better for a mom than for just anyone. So, when it arrived, it was not fitting for the little girl I had bought it for. That was disappointing. HOWEVER, it is a great story and a perfect gift for my mom who does so much every year to make Christmas magical. It's a perfect gift for her.

    A perfect gift book for any mom, mother, woman

    This book gives credit to the woman behind the scene of the holidays. There are thousands of women who deserve recognition for their efforts during the festive time of year. Finally Mrs. Claus gets the acknowledgment she deserves.... 'Behind every jolly Santa is a tired Mrs. Claus'.
