Title: The Santa Club
Author: Kelly Moss
Review: It took me about five minutes to read this little book. It is the perfect gift to give to a child who is asking about Santa especially around the age of 5-10, they can read it themselves or you can read it with them. My kids always ask about the age of 7-8 and we tell them ‘Yes’ and that those who do not believe in Santa do not receive gifts from Santa. That keeps them from spreading around what they suspect, especially if the gifts from Santa and the gifts from mommy are wrapped in the same gift paper.
This book is full of colorful drawings and words of wisdom about Santa, God, Jesus and those who give to others. It tells kids that ‘Yes’ there is a Santa and exactly what a Santa does and how they can now become a member of the Santa Club and give to others. The last page is an official card of entry that you can fill out and place a photo of the new inducted Santa.
I recommend this book to parents with kids who want to know and even just to sit on the shelf for when you are asked ‘Is there a Santa?’ This would make a great gift for that child age 5-10 and a special keepsake they could even give to their kids at the right time. It is a hard question to answer, I didn’t want to say yes and have them think I lied to them later, but then I didn’t want to say no either. This book will help with that question and leave the child with a wonderful answer that they can now tell younger siblings ‘Yes’ to.
