What Santa Gives…not Get

I received this lovely review of Santa’s Birthday Gift from reviewer and author Laura Davis and want to share:

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.

eBook versions available on Kindle

Santa’s Birthday Gift by Sherrill S. Cannon – What Santa Gives, not Gets…

Enjoy the gift of ChristmasI love to write poetry, so I’ve decided to share my poetry on my blog occasionally.  This poem accompanies Santa’s Birthday Gift, for I believe that Santa is the Spirit of Christmas:

The Spirit of Christmas

Santa’s the spirit of Christmas,

                          The longing to give in your heart,

                                                         The wanting to make others happy,

                                                        As God gave us Love at the start.

 

                                                         For God’s Love was born at Christmas,

                                                          All wrapped in a small holy Boy.

                                                            So we want to give on His birthday,

                                                              To share all our love and our joy.

 

                                                              You’re never too old to love Santa,

                                                                 Just open your heart and believe…

                                                                   That Santa brings gifts for Christ’s birthday,

                                                                 And it’s better to give than receive.

                                          … Sherrill S. Cannon

Booksigning at Barnes & Noble, Vestal NY 9/21

I had a wonderful booksigning at Barnes & Noble in Vestal NY on Tuesday 9/21. It’s such fun to share my books with others – and it was nice to meet a few fellow local authors at the same time! “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” was very popular, and I was pleased that there was also renewed interest in “Santa’s BirthdBarnes & Noble, Vestal NYSigning Peter & the Whimper-Whineysay Gift”!
