Santa’s Birthday Gift by author Sherrill S. Cannon is a book I wish my kids could have had as children.

Two Christmas stories are combined in one beautiful little book that is sure to become a traditional read at Christmas time for many families.

The author has created a delightful story that is both poignant and magical, keeping the real meaning of Christmas alive and answering the questions, who is Santa Claus and what does he have to do with the real meaning of Christmas?

This rhyming book takes Santa on an adventure from a simple toy maker to a star follower. He follows the star right into Bethlehem where he meets the baby Jesus. When he sees that gifts are being given to Jesus, he wants to give his most precious gifts too – toys! When he discovers something magical about his Christmas sack, he vows to bring toys to every child in the world in honour of the newborn King.

This book is a Reader’s Favorite Winner and an Indie Excellent Finalist and one you are sure to enjoy with your children each and every Christmas.

Thank you to Crystal’s Tiny Treasures for the nice review of Santa’s Birthday Gift.

Santa’s Birthday Gift Review

“In beautiful rhyming meter, Sherrill tells the story of of a toy maker who sees a light in the sky and hears of baby Jesus’ birth.  He wants to take one of his toys as a gift to him.  Tristan’s favourite part of the book is when Santa and his reindeer run out of snow.

He traveled a long way, then ran out of snow,

And wasn’t sure how he’d be able to go.

So he offered a prayer as he looked to the sky

And suddenly his reindeer were able to fly!

With Santa’s giving heart, he not only gave a gift to Jesus, he also gave gifts to everyone in attendance.  With each gift he gave, another one appeared in his sack.  His gift to Jesus was to return and give presents to all the good boys and girls around the world each year, and thus Sherrill weaves the mystery of Santa and the Nativity together.

This book has been a great hit in our home!”

Emily Elf brings Manner-Man to Addie. (I think Emily may be a fan…!)

I was delighted to discover that Emily Elf has chosen another of my books to bring to Addie.  Do you suppose that it’s because Emily knows that Addie is on the cover?

It seems that she knows that Addie is the Captain of the Manner-Man team – and that we all need to try to find a cure for CureJM.

You can help find a cure by going to my CureJM Fundraiser where 50% of the cost of my books goes to the CureJM Foundation.  Please click here: CureJM Fundraiser

I hope that Emily likes my other books also…

“Santa’s Birthday Gift”…What Santa gives, not gets!

Happy Thanksgiving!  Yes, I know Christmas is not yet here, and we all have lots to be thankful for, and I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!…

But the birth of Jesus is something we are all thankful for also, and it makes Thanksgiving even more special to anticipate what is coming next!

So as Christmas approaches,  I thought I’d share once more the Santa’s Birthday Gift YouTube trailer, reminding everyone of the reason for the season…

(After I read the story of the Nativity to my grandchild, she asked, “But where’s Santa?”  which inspired this story…)

Nice note from a parent about Santa’s Birthday Gift!

I absolutely love Santa’s Birthday Gift. What a way to bring the two traditions together. You have such a way with words, it is like magic. Ashlyn would NEVER sit for a book before and now she actually begs me to read. If you would know Ashlyn, she is about as ADHD as any child can be so this is HUGE! I LOVE YOU and YOUR BOOKS. THANK YOU so much. It is like a gift on its own.
