Santa’sBirthday Gift (2009) is an attempt to include Santa in the meaning of Christmas. (After I read a story of the nativity to my young granddaughter, she looked at me and asked “But where’s Santa?”  The editor who critiqued this book wrote: “What a cute story! I know there are many stories about how Santa came into the picture, but this is a delightful idea behind the gifts at Christmas.” The story is best for ages 3-10, to be read to children who still believe in Santa!  This book received a 2011 National Indie Excellence Finalist Award, and a 2011 Readers Favorite Silver Medal.

    Dear Sherrill,

    I always enjoy looking at this site. The bookcovers are cute, sweet (nice colors) — your ideas?

    Anyway, your awards alone make this site exciting, but those books sure are cute!

    I’ll see more of them, soon.

    Highest Regards,
