Quick Pick

In light of this feastday today and the recent Santa discussion, I thought it helpful to throw out what I think is an excellent book on the topic: "A Special Place for Santa." This link goes to the current place where you can find the book the cheapest. I've noticed that around this time of year places like Ebay and sell it for a much higher price than the suggested $8.95... which isn't too bad considering it's a hardback!

At any rate, this is an EXCELLENT book that shows that Santa Clause and Jesus Christ are not mutually exclusive and it shows the history of St. Nick and how he fits into today's world. The illustrations are a little cartoony for my taste but the story is absolutely invaluable as it reconciles Santa's place on Christmas with the birth of Jesus.
