Format: Hardcover
We've all heard about the heartfelt letter an eight year old girl named Virginia wrote to a New York newspaper asking, "Is there a Santa Claus?" When the editor responded with an emotional and stirring piece about childhood and imagination, the story has been shared for years.

Now the stirring tale has been brought to life in what's sure to become a classic children's book, Yes, Virginia: There Is a Santa Claus. The book recounts the classic holiday tale that asks the age old question every child ponders at some point in their life and brings to life the magic Christmas brings.

Follow along as Virginia is made fun of by the meanest, bossiest, snootiest girl in town who claims Santa is not real. Claiming it's 'baby stuff,' Charlotte sets Virginia on her mission--to prove that there IS a Santa Claus. Virginia visits the library, questions a man dressed like Santa on the street, and finally writes her letter to the New York Sun. But when Charlotte finds the letter in the garbage can and rubs it in Virginia's face, Virginia can't believe it. That night, the man dressed like Santa, who Virginia had met on the street, bursts into the newspaper's office and demands that the editor answer it to give the whole city something to believe in. When Virginia wakes the next morning, she's surprised with an editorial, a message written just for her.

Chris Plehal has done an amazing job of bringing the story of Virginia to life for young readers and every child who's ever dreamed of Santa will especially love the illustrations by James Bernardin.

I purchased this book to use in my 7th Grade ELA classroom to teach a lesson on writing editorial letters. Perfect example! Most of my students had never even heard the story before.

What a beautiful story. Has the full print article at the end. My kids enjoyed the musical that they showed at our local playhouse (my daughter had a small role in it), and the book was just a lovely compliment to it.

My 5 yr. old grandson was told by an older boy that there is not a Santa Claus. He was quite disappointed and angry. Someone recommended this book. The book presented the idea in a different perspective. Santa Claus is actually character building, teaching the true meaning from a spiritual, but not a religious, perspective. Loving and caring for others, good deeds, selflessness. My grandson was somewhat comforted by this; however, it taught him some posititve morals and values. I enjoyed the book myself.
