    Great Gift

    I loved this little book, and gave it a s a Christmas gift to several of my family members. I also read it to my children, (ages 10 and 8), who were both telling me they no longer "believe". Well, after hearing the stories in the book, which is authored by none other than Santa himself, my children have a new appreciation for the magic and the meaning of Christmas. They can't wait for next December, so I will read the stories to them again.<BR/>This book is ageless, and has definite Christian overtones. Definitely a permanent part of my Christmas Library.
