#64 – Santa’s Birthday Gift by Sherrill S. Cannon

 5 Stars

“If your child or grandchild has ever wondered when Santa fits in the traditional Christmas story, now you can read them Santa’s Birthday Gift.Finally, a book that ties two holiday traditions into one inspirational tale of wonder—as Santa brings gifts to baby Jesus.”

Santa’s Birthday Gift is a wonderfully crafted story that explains both the birth of Jesus and Santa Claus’ spirit of gift giving.  The story is written with such skill that it becomes plausible that Santa could have been there that night and this is how he began his yearly trips to good boys and girls.  If your children, or you, want to know how Santa’s reindeer can fly, this story explains how.  Have you ever wondered how Santa’s bag is always full of toys, no matter how many he pulls out?  I have and this story finally explained in a way that makes sense.

There are really two stories in Santa’s Birthday Gift.  The second is the amazing birth of baby Jesus.  The traditional nativity story re-told in simple terms that most every child would understand.  Still, the main story is how Santa Claus came to be.  I really like this story.  It can be leisurely read in one sitting and holds the reader’s (and the listener’s), attention throughout.  This story will become a part of your Christmas tradition; it is that good and that inspiring.

  2. Woot! You are open for commenting again! 🙂 We also reviewed and enjoyed this book. We think Sherrill Cannon is fantastic – we’ve loved all her books. Thanks for hosting with us at the Kid Lit Blog Hop once again. 🙂


    • I have though she was fantastic since I met her in 2011. She was one of the first authors I reviewed — and she gave me her entire collection at that time — and updates me with new releases. How great is that? I’ll tell you how great that is, it is GREAT!!

      I agree with you Rene, she is a good author and a good person. Maybe the word awesome would be a better fit.


      • I have dealt with many wonderful authors in the year I’ve been doing this. Sherrill is so kind and generous. I can’t sing her praises enough. And, of course her books are fabulous! 🙂


    • Why hadn’t anyone thought of a story like this before? It seems an obvious tale to tell. Well, Ms. Cannon did some of her best work on this, her debut book. A classic. I want this book to catch on and actually be a classic.
