More About the Author

Kelly Moss is the CEO of JoeBro Records and JonJam Productions, small independent entertainment based companies located in Henderson, NV. When not working she donates her time speaking to or helping young artists navigate the entertainment industry without getting swindled. The Santa Club, Kelly's First book, came out of a need to help other parents deal with the age old question, Is Santa Real. The Santa Club answers the question truthfully without diminishing the celebration of Christmas. Kelly has three children, two sons who are professional actors in Los Angeles and a lovely daughter who was adopted from Kazakhstan at the age of fourteen. Kelly is in the process of writing her second book on how to be a Stageparent your children can be proud of.

Santa is real because we're all members of the Santa club, and we're members because the greatest gift of all has inspired us to give.

I received this book for review from The Cadence Group through the LibraryThing Early Reviewer Program. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own.

Moss answers two questions in this book that every child will undoubtedly ask: Is there a Santa Claus? and Is Santa Claus real?

I thought this was a cute book, and I liked the tie-in to the Birth of Jesus. Many people look at Christmas as an "either/or" deal: You either believe in Santa Claus or Jesus - not both. Christmas has also become so commercialized that we forget the "Christ" in "Christmas." The simple explanation that Moss provides is that all people who give belong to "The Santa Club," whose members love children so much that they give without expecting anything in return. This book is a sweet reminder to remember the spirit of Christmas and to give joyfully.

The hardcover version of the book is of gift-quality with heavier pages. The illustrations are bright and colourful, and I love the way that St. Nicholas is depicted.

MY RATING: 4 stars! I really liked it!!

Although this mommy never wants to her little ones to stop believing in Santa Claus The Santa Club does what many of us can't. Rather than answer the dreaded "Is Santa real" question, I just avoided it. I didn't want my kids to stop believing in the magic of Santa. I know they probably stopped believing years ago, but they never let on. Kudos to my kiddies!

A decent read for mommies like me who just can't bring themselves to answer the question. I read it and loved the oddity of the illustrations. They were more Father Christmas than Santa Claus. Very different than the Jolly Old St. Nick we're used to seeing. However, the message is timeless. A message of love.

I appreciate the author's efforts to weave a bit of history into the tale. I also appreciate Moss' efforts to present a topic many parents struggle with: When to tell your little one? I wasn't ready to break the news to my kiddies but in time I will...and I'll be sure to keep Moss' The Santa Club on hand to help me break the news. Overall, a goo

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful little book, an easy and quick read, to answer the perplexing question about Santa Clause.

When our children are young, we enjoy the anticipation of Christmas through the light in their eyes, through the almost magical energy as they await Christmas day. Many of us try to balance just the right message of giving with our hearts and of honoring the birth of Christ with the spirit of love and giving. It is a beautiful time for all, a time of wonder, and peace, and love. Even the music shouts to the Heavens to spread peace, joy, and love everywhere.

And many of us dread the time when our child will ask that question: Is there a Santa Clause? Is Santa real? We agonize over what we will say and when we will say it. After all, WHAT IS THE TRUTH???

Author Kelly Moss answers these questions for us, in a very special way. This beautifully illustrated, full color, hardcover book is intended to be read with a parent or guardian (and the child). In a very special way, it touches on the relationship between Saint Nicholas, Jesus Christ, Christmas as Jesus' birthday and "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). The book includes ethnically diverse illustrations and explains that there are "Santas" everywhere (parents, grandparents, and many others) who give gifts just because they love children and without expecting anything in return. It invites the child to keep this special secret and to become part of the Santa Club. There is even a certificate and place for your child's name and photo in the book. You will find the glow of author Kelly Moss on the inside back cover, smiling back at you.

A wonderful book, ready to handle a very delicate subject for you.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 20, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Although the question of the existence of the jolly fat dude was famously answered in a 1897 New York newspaper, many parents today still have difficulty helping children adjust to that mind-boggling discovery that nobody actually lands reindeer on your roof, comes through key holes, eats cookies and milk and visits children all over the world on just one memorable night per year.

Although targeted to the 4-8 age group, I believe that four is way too young to be laying that level of revelation on a child, as I think I would have gone into complete shock or catatonia at that age. Beautifully presented and illustrated, the book stresses in a very unique way that children must consider themselves ready to handle the reality of Santa Claus before reading the book, and even so, that it should be done with guidance from a parent or guardian.

The book positively reinforces the concept of joyful giving, especially during the Christmas season, without expecting anything in return.

"It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35)

Format: Hardcover
The ultimate spoiler alert - the purpose of this book is to provide an answer for the Santa question...if you do not want your children asking about the origin of Santa you should NOT leave this book laying around!

At some point every point will be faced with the Santa Clause question. Early on it may be easy to avoid or play off the question, but at some point you are going to be forced to lay-it-out straight. "The Santa Club" gives parents an option to present the truth to a young one in a very delicate manner. "The Santa Club" traces the tradition of the loving "Santa" heart from the birth of Jesus Christ, to the kindness of St. Nichols and his red suit, to the millions of people who keep the "Spirit" alive in well. Children learn that everyone has the ability emulate Jesus' gift of giving and they too can become a member in the Santa club. Children are then congratulated on being both old and wise enough to learn and help protect this well-guarded "Santa" secret.

Final Verdict - "The Santa Club" provides a religious based answer to a question that will eventually be asked. I like the message, and I think it offers a gentle and encouraging message that will soothe their transition from a Santa believer to becoming an actual Santa!

4 1/2 Stars

Please note that I received a copy of "The Santa Club" for reviewing purposes.
