Talking to children about Santa Claus

Is this the year you talk about Santa Claus?

If so, this book can help make the experience a faith-filled moment for your entire family.

THE SECRET OF THE SANTA BOX is an illustrated poem about Kristin, a curious girl who loves Christmas. Once she starts asking questions, her parents explain Santa in a way that reinforces their faith and the true meaning of Christmas.

Linda and I talked to our children the same way as described in this book. We hope this method will create a lasting impression upon your family and fill your home with the joy of the season. Read more.
