The Christmas Magic - Lauren Thompson

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!  Times 100!

Oh, how I love this wonderful Christmas book!  If you are looking for a bright red, mall Santa, red-nosed reindeer, comical elves, "Ho-ho-ho!" kind of Christmas tale - this is not it.  Thank goodness!

In this lovely book, Santa is preparing for the night the Christmas magic comes, in a calm, quiet, very practical day-to-day way.  The watercolor illustrations are incredible!  They are the perfect accompaniment to the story's subtle prose.  In a world where our children are exposed to the over commercialized idea of what Christmas should be, I consider this is a must read.  The Christmas Magic promotes imagination and evokes the classical idea of Santa Claus.  Truly magical!
