This book belonged to me. How do I know? Check it out. This was when I was learning to write. Notice I tried out two versions of my name. Note to EVERYONE....never call me Rosie.....

The illustrations are fun! Look at those reindeer lined up in a row getting some rest after their Christmas Eve run!
Lastly, this is another book with music printed in it. It's the last page of text this verses the front and back covers.

This is a cute story about a snowman who wants to be a Christmas snowman and his nature friends shown on the cover help him out. It has lovely and old fashioned illustration since the copyright date is 1977. Do you agree?

Even though it's set a few years before I was born, I can certainly relate to many things in the story. I re-read this heartwarming story about holding Christmas in your heart all year.

Mr. Church touches on what the TRUE meaning of Santa and Christmas is all about and does it in a way that all ages can understand.
I love the bio section of this book about Francis because it also teaches us another lesson, you can't judge a book by it's cover. Someone, who is described as curmudgeonly, had a sentimental heart that held the TRUE meaning of Christmas. And in his lifetime, he never took credit for the answer to the letter, it wasn't until after his death did the truth come out about the author of this wonderful editorial piece that's been turned into a books and cartoon.
Do you agree with Francis P. Church's description of what Santa Claus is?
