"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

This story really makes you think of the closeness of family, and how special family really is. Every family has their own traditions, and it’s nice to pass them on, and continue them on through generations. This book most certainly I would consider to be a good family read. Absolutely child friendly by far! Something I will read to my little ones during the Christmas season. One of my favorite parts in this story was how the family decorated the Christmas tree together. It gave me that same warm feeling inside while reading about it, like when I was younger and did the same thing with my family during this season. As a child growing up, my family and I always listened to Christmas music, and decorated our tree together. It always sparked up that extra excitement about it being that time of year! And of course, all the tinsel and colorful lights were always pleasant to look at!
As a mother myself now, I have passed that same tradition on to my own children. This book i believe goes into such great detail about those family moments, because traditions, family, etcetera, I believe were very important to the author. I believe he was trying to really get out the true meaning of Christmas. This book truly warms my heart! Once I began reading it, it was definitely without a doubt, difficult to want to stop. I enjoyed how when I read it, it took me to where the story was. Except I was the character, and with my own family, back at a time in my own life as a child. Reading this book, was like a mental adventure. You certainly traveled beyond where you were while reading it. I instantly took to the author’s heart. Clearly they grew up loving Christmas time. And all the closeness the season brings a family and friends. To me this story absolutely portrays the most important ”true” meaning of this time of year. Clearly, that is family.
For those of you who also enjoy this season too, then you will definitely enjoy this book! You will also be able to relate to the authors very detailed, joyful, and warming message of Christmas season. Reading this story will bring you back, and have you reliving your childhood. Bringing back all those warm, exciting, crazy childhood like feelings. Something else I also found to be really nice about this book, was while reading it, I found there to be so many parts where it’s like you’re in the young character Will’s head. Clearly by the way the author wrote this, and described Will’s analogies, this young twelve year old was very intelligent. You feel at moments like you’re his conscious, and get clued in on that childlike imagination that all children have. You really get a feel for how this young man thinks, and feels about the Christmas season, as well as Father Christmas. I really liked how no matter what his friends said, what the television said, or even his parents, he still chose to ”believe”. That to me sends out such a powerful message to anyone in life! I most definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the Christmas Season, or someone who dosen’t understand the true meaning of this season. You will not only enjoy this book, but certainly benefit from it, truly embracing the true meaning of the Christmas season, is absolutely special for any family! This book was an excellent read!
When Will went to Snowfields, a school to train children to work with Father Christmas himself and learn about the magic involved in Christmas and all the hard work that goes into making Christmas, I wished there was really a school like this I could have attended when I was young. The descriptions of the school grounds were so vivid I transported myself there and walked along side of the children as they explored the areas. The writer is very visual in the descriptions of everything including the people that work in the school and the students that go there with Will. You feel like you know the people from those descriptions and you can see them too.
While at the school, Will stumbles upon a mystery that could jeopardize Christmas. He is enlisted to help catch the culprits and save Christmas. The story makes you think like a detective and think about who could be participating in this mystery. I was really into this part because I always wanted to be a policeman when I was young because I was very good at solving things and finding things around our house and at our school.
I would recommend this book to all ages because when you sit down to read A Fraud at Snowfields you will be transported to a magical place full of adventure for young and old alike. I can’t wait until my new granddaughter is old enough for me to read it to her which will be in a few years. I am recommending this to my son to read to my other grandchildren as well. This is a five star read as far as I am concerned.
and sets in full. It has a great plot and I love the sense of humor infused throughout the story.
Enter Will Burns, accepted to a secret school for the White Christmas Organization. It’s such an honor, but as you can imagine, he doesn’t believe it until he gets to fly in a sleigh. How awesome. From floating clouds to magical spells that hide you from the general public this story can’t be any better.
You go along for the ride with Will as he learns all he needs to know to get the presents made, delivered, ect.. The best part is all the magical happenings, from snow protecting buildings, to giant holly bushes, to stairs that grow. Not to mention the flying sleighs. You are in for a wild, incredible ride.
Every great story needs some mystery and a not so obvious villain. Fraud In Snowfield did not disappoint. It’s like Harry Potter meets A Christmas Story, wonderful Christmas fun with some magic and action thrown in. Definitely a must read for all ages. I eagerly look forward to discovering more books by Daniel Klock, he is a wonderful author, with un-matchable talent.
