It’s Not About You, Mr. Santa Clause: A Love Letter About the True Meaning of Christmas, written by Soraya Diase Coffelt and illustrated by Tea Seroya, reminds children that Christmas is about Jesus Christ. The story is narrated from the perspective of a child, who writes a letter to Santa, telling the story of Jesus’ birth and why it is so significant. The nativity story is explained in an exciting tone, and it is written in a manner that is easy for children to understand. I think that kids will really enjoy the book!
I liked how the narrator said to Santa Claus, “This Christmas, I want to thank you for all that you do. For every gift you give to kids, well, it is as if you are honoring Jesus, too!” The story shows that we can honor Jesus and celebrate His birth as we give gifts to family and friends. The book nicely ends with a prayer about accepting Jesus into your heart. It’s Not About You, Mr. Santa Clause is a special book, because it tells us the story of Jesus’ birth and shows us why it matters.
