Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus Review

Yes, Virginia: There Is a Santa ClausYes, Virginia: There Is a Santa Claus by Chris Plehal

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh what an amazing book to read!

When your child comes to you asking that glorious question, "Is Santa real?" this is the book to read with them!

I absolutely LOVE this answer. I've been telling this to my son for years! He never really knew the commercial Santa Claus except what he sees on TV. But he always knew of his Spirit and the Spirit of Christmas as well as the reason for the Season -- Celebrating the birth of Jesus.

Well written. Beautiful art work. Based on a true story. And they included the actual "Letter to the Editor and response" from the New York "The Sun" from back in the 1800s.

  1. I'm way behind, so I'll start with - ah the fairy tale marriage. So nice to see this still exists ;)

    And it is the spirit of Christmas I adore, not this commercialism. I still hope my kids believe in the magic, if not the entity.

    Thanks for your encouragement.


  2. Hi LadyJai! Ok - forgive me. I'm actually trying to comment on your post for today (Monday, 2/28), but I don't see the "leave comment" option...? Could be that it's Monday... :) Anyhow - thank you for including me in your 15 for the Stylish Blogger award! So very nice of you ~ and loved all the tidbits you shared about yourself. Your genealogy sounds absolutely fascinating! Mine says that we're likely related to the bad guy in "Braveheart", so yeah... not a story I usually share. :o Have a good one!

  3. Hello LadyJai! I can't leave a comment under the new post about your award. Congratulations on the award and thank you for passing it on to me! Really appreciate it.
