All our holidays and special occasions are marked with books for the Grands. I've been reading Christmas books to find the perfect ones for our Grands this Christmas.

How Santa Got His Job is actually kind of cute, albeit far different than the usual folk tales of his beginning. The illustrations are great and I LOVE those poor polar bears.

My sons have outgrown this book but we find it hilarious and will keep re-reading it! Ages 3-99!

A refreshing look at who Santa Claus really is! This book brings Santa to life by illustrating him as an average guy who struggled before he came to find the work that he loves. The sequel to this title is: How Santa Lost his Job, by the same author.

I know someone who is a lot like Santa, and he has gone through a lot of the same jobs! When I first showed him this book, he was totally enchanted by the pictures and the story. And what a good story to pass on. Every reader can benefit by reading about someone we think we know every well, who just kept trying to become who he really is and the perfect job for him. Stephen Krensky is amazing! And the pictures by S. D. Schindler are absolutely wonderful. this book truly captures the spirit of the season!
