    " This is another wonderful holiday book I read each year. A young girl plans to stay awake and meet Santa. She has a special gift and a special question to ask him this year. My favorite part is what happens to animals each Christmas Eve at midnight. I am positive that my dog Molly understands what I say to her all year long. "

    " I love how the little girl believed in Santa and she respected her friend who did not. The friend helped her through hard times when she was sad about her Dad who had died. Sad but touching story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 5pfeiffer_andrew | 1/20/2014

    " This book would be a okay 6th grade book to read. I should have waited closer to Christmas because this book gets you excited for Christmas. I would not reconmend this book to 8th graders because there is some younger kid stuff in it. Also the book was a little easier to read then I planed on. "

    " Book 3 Quarter 2: This book is about believing during the Christmas season. It is definitely a more beginner book which I did not know when I started the book. I think this book was good but it didn't have as much detail a I would have liked. Overall it was a good quick read. "

    " Eight year old Tess believes that if she can talk to Santa, he can save her best friend's father from a death by cancer. Sweet story that takes place in 1958..a simpler time that reminded me of my own childhood Christmases. "

    " I read this children's Christmas book on Easter this year. It was on my shelf and I'm working my way down the line of books I have had for years for reasons I don't remember. It was an easy read with a good message, but it was a bit too simple for me. Even children's books can handle more drama. "
