Two Delightful Santa Books for Children

I recently discovered two fascinating children's books by a unique author with a compelling story.  If you've never heard of Elizabeth Rooks, you've been missing out on a real treasure.  Luckily, I found these books just in time for Christmas 2012 - I think they would make great gifts!  The books are titled "Where Does Santa Go on Vacation after Christmas?" and "Where Does Santa Work after Christmas?".  I don't usually do book reviews, but I love Elizabeth's personal story and the way that she helps us answer the tough questions about what Santa Claus does the rest of the year!

"Where Does Santa Go on Vacation after Christmas" follows Tyler, an imaginative and curious young boy, Tyler, and his quest to discover where Santa vacations during the year.  Tyler and the reader together discover the glorious variety of cultures that make up our world.  The best part of this book is that it teaches children that even someone like Santa has trouble fitting in when he visits different parts of the world.  What a fun way to teach children about diversity and understanding others.

Tyler’s character is instrumental in the second book, “Where Does Santa Work After Christmas,” as well.  Through this book, children discover that Santa has more than one career – he isn’t just a jolly, bearded man in a red suit.  Santa shows children about different professions through his roles as a veterinarian and a fire-fighter and teaches children compassion and responsibility.

These two books are an endearing complement to any book collection, and would make an excellent Christmas gift this year.  They can both be purchased either at Elizabeth Rook's website and on Barnes and Noble or
