||Flight of the Reindeer :
The True Story of Santa Claus and His Christmas Mission
by Robert Sullivan
Lest you think that
Christmas is just a sentimental commercial venture perpetuated by misguided Victorian-era
worshippers, Flight of the Reindeer offers proof positive that there is a Santa Claus and
yes, reindeer really do know how to fly. Robert Sullivan, a senior editor at Life
magazine, diligently gathered documentation from respected scientists, historians,
zoologists, and Arctic explorers to prove once and for all that Santa is not just a myth.
The gorgeous illustrations, convincing photos, and smoothly written text make this book an
ideal gift for children who are teetering on the edge of nonbelief and an even better one
for grownups who long ago gave up hope.
||Santa's Book of Names
by David M. McPhail
When Edward has
trouble learning to read, his teacher urges tests but his mother counsels
"Patience." Then, in Edward's house on Christmas Eve, Santa accidentally
drops the all- important book listing the gifts children will receive--and when Edward
catches up with him to give it back, Santa invites him to come along to help. Since Edward
can't read, he just holds the book and turns pages. But when Santa's glasses tumble into
the sea, Edward realizes he must try to read--and finds he can. Appropriately, the last
gift is a book for Edward, which he reads all by himself on Christmas morning. The novel
twist on the popular scenario makes a sweet story that's sure to be a hit, especially with
McPhail's cozy illustrations of Edward's home and a traditional Santa. (Picture book. 4-8)
||A Christmas Story, a true
by Jay Frankston
For 12 years the
author played Santa Claus anonymously in New York City in response to letters from needy
children addressed simply to Santa Claus, North Pole. This is the story of these children
and the anonymous man in the red suit. It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It
will make you feel good. This little book reflects the true spirit of Christmas
carried to the poor neighborhoods of N.Y.C., to children whose impoverished lives were
made a little brighter by this stranger in a white beard. It's a treasure. The
book was condensed in Readers Digest.
