This is a beautiful tale of believing when no one else does. This story is about believing in one’s self and sharing that gift with others. The book contains brightly-colored pictures that capture the attention of children.


“I liked this story. Lots of my friends don’t believe in Santa Claus, but I do. I don’t care what they say. If you don’t believe, you won’t be able to be happy. Virginia is eight-years-old and asked a newspaperman if there was a Santa Claus. He tells her to believe, even if we can’t see something. It will make you happy. My mom said to always be true to your heart. So if you read this book, you know there is a Santa Claus.”


“Yes Virginia There Is A Santa Claus” is a wonderful old-time classic that teaches children to believe and share their love and hope with others. Immediately after reading this Zoey wanted to go to the police department and give them treats.
