The Santa Club by Kelly Moss, Illustrated by Jim Keserich

This is a children’s book that adroitly ties Santa Claus and Jesus Christ together.

I’m always a bit skeptical of books that proselytize but this is not heavy handed or over evangelical. I liked the way the author cautions the reader that they shouldn’t breach the faith in Santa. In addition Ms. Moss ties the love of God and the origins of Christmas gift giving together in an eminently satisfying manner.

This book should help younger children to maintain the belief system in Santa for a longer period of time. It also may introduce the concepts of God, Christ, loving and giving to an audience that may not be familiar with those Christian concepts.

Any mention of Jesus Christ is certain to offend a portion of the population, my advice then is not to buy the book. For the rest of the world that is more open minded this book may be an excellent Christmas gift. The world would be a much nicer place if we all belonged to The Santa Club.

I highly recommend it.
