Dear Santa,
What a magical person you are, and your Avi says it all. Your smile is contageous and i can plainly see how you have such a great time playing Santa. I tried to look up your name as i read your story, but all i could see was, Santa. It fits you.:)
Your writing is flawless and your story, charming. Many stars are sprinkled on Santa's Magic, and my best wishes for health and happiness in 2013 and always, go out to you and yours.
God bless,
Maria x

Format: Paperback
I found this to be an absolutely delightful book about the true meaning of Christmas. It really isn't about the gifts, but rather the magic of the season and one person's effort to make that clear in the eyes of children and adults alike. Although it is a quick and easy read, the story stays with you for days (months) and truly brightens the mood of what can sometimes seem like an overwhelming season of responsibility and obligations. This santa selflessly gives his heart and soul to the families he visits. Highly recommended.

I was enchanted by Santa's Magic when I first read it and shared the stories with my family and friends. We agreed this book will become a holiday tradition for us and we will read stories out loud on Christmas eve for all to enjoy. The book is short and easy to read and just plain "FUN".
