All the Answers


The children ask lots of questions about Santa this time of year. And luckily, we have all the answers. We do. Because we have The Santa Claus Book. Have you heard of it?

When I was little my parents had this book. And with all the curiosity of young minds, we would consult the book to find out how Santa makes toys. It told us the kind of games that elves play and how the elves first met Santa. And it laid out the Christmas schedule and told us about Santa's clothes. And we knew it was the truth. Because it was in the book.

The book was pure magic growing up. Because it taught us all about Santa. And answered all our questions. And we couldn't get enough.

A few years ago my mom and dad gave each of my brothers and sisters and me a copy of The Santa Claus Book for our very own. I was so excited. We brought it home and read through its pages. I was reminded of all the good memories of Christmas wonder. It took me back to snowy evenings when my dad would read to his family from its pages by the light of the twinkling Christmas tree lights.

The other night middle daughter asked how Santa makes it down the chimney. I told her I didn't know, but I knew how we could find out. And the husband read to the children from our Santa Bible. And the children marveled at all the knowledge the book contained. And he read some more. And now the children run to it multiple times each day as some new question arises. And they are intoxicated by its illustrations, just as I was as a child.

Like I said, the book is pure magic. And I'm glad we have it because it has all the answers.

That book is adorable, and a great idea. When I'm old enough to have kids, I'm definitely buying it and always having it on hand.
