The Christmas Magic is one of those books that you definitely want to add to your collection of books to read on Christmas Eve. Your children will be delighted not only by the wonderful story but by the enchanting illustrations by Jon J. Muth. I have to admit to buying children's books by illustrations most of the time, rather than by the story. I know this might sound horrifying to literature experts, but, alas, it is true. The story and the illustrations are equally wonderful and the author, Lauren Thompson, tells a heartwarming story about Santa and the magic of Christmas.
When the nights are longest and the stars shine brightest, Santa begins to prepare for his big night of giving. He gathers his reindeer, feeds them parsnips and berries and then polishes his bells and his sled. Lovingly, he chooses toys for every child in the world. Santa loves them all and he knows what each child at heart wants most. The magical night arrives when reindeers fly, and Santa spreads Christmas joy and warmth throughout the world--as he always has -- and always will until the end of time.
