Review:Santa, Is It Really You? by Marilyn Harkrider/Illustrated by Hannah Newsom


Summary:
If you have ever wondered why there are so many men dressed up like Santa in stores and malls, then you have found your explanation in this story.
It all began long ago with a discussion between Mrs. Claus and Santa and a surprise meeting with a little boy named Ben. As you magically travel through the years with Santa, you will find the answer to the question you will never have to ask again.
My review:
This book is a cute explanation of how Santa gained some help and made children all over the world happy. I loved how the book went through a whole process leading up to other men dressing up to represent Santa himself, even though children know there is only one Santa.

This is not a picture book but one for children who can read well or a book for a bit older children to be read to. The story is well thought out and a book that certainly could easily become a family favorite read year after year.

I loved the illustrations that went along with the book. They are muted in Christmas colors and have a semi-Norman Rockwell feel to them. The illustrations add to an already great book that gives the reader a cozy feel and also answers questions that all children have about Santa.

Great book and 5 stars from me.
Bonus Points for the author: A portion of the profits from this book goes to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. That is a double win for the book!
