The book Santa and the Christ Child is a wonderful, delightful, entertaining story for young and old. The author presents a pleasant blend of childrens' interest in Santa Claus and the theme of love and giving with the original Christmas message of the birth of the Christ Child. This enchanting story keeps the focus on the heart of Christmas rather than the commercialization of the season. It also provides an imaginative and fitting answer to Virginia Wolf's question, "Is there a Santa Claus?" What a delightful and appropriate defense of why we should not remove Santa Claus from Christmas--even Santa knows the reason for the season and that is why he does what he does. I recommend this book to all persons who celebrate Christmas. (This Christmas legend was the inspiration for the famous sculpture of the Kneeling Santa).

A great book for children on Christmas Eve. I read it to my kids every year.
