is a children’s book for parents who want to keep the magic of Christmas and respect their parenting values of truthfulness and honesty.
About The Book
“Is Santa real?” is a dreaded question for a lot of parents. This children’s book bridges the gap between parents who are wanting to continue the magic of Santa at Christmas whilst also respecting their parenting values of truthfulness and honesty with their child.
You may have chosen to read this book to your child because you have already been going along with the modernised tale of Santa but have since decided you felt uncomfortable with this, or you may have a baby or toddler and are deciding on what you want to do. The truth and magic of Santa can co-exist, as this can still enhance their wellbeing through imaginative play.
As you read this story with your child they may have different reactions depending on what they already do or do not know about Santa. This could include excitement, confusion, relief, or disappointment. This book comes with a Notes For The Parents section with guidance and examples on how to support your child.
