If you have children, one of these day’s you have to face that one question that’s hard to answer. No, it’s not “Where do babies come from?” but “Is there a Santa Clause?” It’s such a large question that it even prompted an Editorial in the September 21, 1897 edition of The New York Sun, entitled “Yes Virginia, There Is A Santa Clause!”

In Kelly Moss’ delightful book she covers how to tell this story. It begins by making the child promise that they won’t read it without mom and dad, and that they’ll never tell another child about it. This makes them part of The Santa Club.

Throughout the book, it’s interspersed with some biblical verses on giving, as well as a light history of Saint Nicholas. At the end is a certificate inducting the child into The Santa’s Club.

I like that it explains the whole idea of Christmas and Santa is about giving and sacrifice. I also like that it brings the child into a secret club. I remember when I was young, and didn’t we all enjoy being part of a secret group.

The book also has nice illustrations by Jim Keserich. I think it’s a book that any parent might want to consider buying, however for some I think maybe the religious aspects might turn them off. But even with that, I’d recommend the book.

About the Author

Kelly Moss is the CEO of JoeBro Records and JonJam Productions, small independent entertainment based companies located in Henderson, NV. When not working she donates her time speaking to or helping young artists navigate the entertainment industry without getting swindled. The Santa Club, Kelly’s First book, came out of a need to help other parents deal with the age old question, Is Santa Real. The Santa Club answers the question truthfully without diminishing the celebration of Christmas. Kelly has three children, two sons who are professional actors in Los Angeles and a lovely daughter who was adopted from Kazakhstan at the age of fourteen. Kelly is in the process of writing her second book on how to be a Stageparent your children can be proud of.
