|The Santa Story and Tina
by Arita Trahan
This inspiring and delightful storybook is Arita Trahan's follow-up
to her guidebook for parents, The Santa
Story Revisited: How to Give Your Children a Santa They Will Never
In this charming picture book, a young girl learns to enjoy Santa in
surprising new ways. With whimsical full-color illustrations by Ross
Anthony, the book helps parents emphasize the generosity of the Santa
story by playing Santa with their children, as well as for them.
Arita's inspiration for The Santa Story and Tina came when she
told her then-3-year-old daughter about Santa. Shortly afterward, she
was surprised to find an awkwardly-wrapped present "for you, Mommy,
from Santa." She had expected her youngster to focus on imagining
all the gifts she might receive and was touched that she first imagined
ways that she could give.
For the child in everyone, this book is a reminder of what the Santa
archetype is really about. Readers of all ages will be charmed by a
fresh new perspective on the Santa story.
The Santa Story and Tina is the perfect gift for every child
at Christmas time or in the months leading up to the holidays.
