2014 Holiday Gift Guide
The holidays are a time for family and for building new traditions. Books make wonderful holiday gifts for children, especially books that the whole family can sit down and read together in the days leading up to the holidays.
Not many people know that Santa has a son. In fact I had no idea until I read the Baby Santa books written by M. Maitland DeLand! These beautifully illustrated books take readers along with Baby Santa as he embarks on fun-filled adventures across the globe, giving children a glimpse into how Christmas is celebrated around the world, while at the same time teaching values every parent hopes to instill in their child.
The Baby Santa series includes 4 titles – Baby Santa; Baby Santa’s Worldwide Christmas Adventure; Baby Santa and the Lost Letters; Baby Santa and the Missing Reindeer. And now, just in time for the holiday season, DeLand has written a fifth book in this delightful series, Baby Santa and the Gift of Giving.
Using bright and colorful illustrations by Phil Wilson and melodic rhyming text, Baby Santa and the Gift of Giving takes children on a trip to New York City while teaching them what the holidays are really about – caring for others and giving.
“It’s just a few days before Christmas Day when a letter arrives at the bustling North Pole. it;s from the Bond family, and they have a question for Santa: How can they share the spirit of giving on their upcoming trip to New York City? What a great idea! And just like that, Baby Santa is off, with the reindeer and a couple of elves in tow, to give the Bond family the answer – in person. He hosts them on a day of helping others in New York. Along the way, they find time for the amazing sights of Christmastime in the city!”
Follow along with Baby Santa and the Bond family as they visit a community shelter, children’s hospital, an animal shelter and more sharing the holiday spirit with gifts, food and carols. Then join in the fun as they see some of New York City’s most famous sites all decked out in their holiday splendor.
Children will love looking at the colorful pictures and listening to the rhyming cadence of the text as we are all reminded of the true meaning of Christmas. Just like the four Baby Santa books before, this newest one is sure to become a family favorite.
The Baby Santa books can be purchased online at Amazon.com and at Barnes and Noble, both online and at store locations across the country. They are also available in e-book format. These wonderful books would make a wonderful holiday gift for children, a gift that the whole family can sit down together and enjoy.
