Christmas may be canceled this year because Santa is too tired to deliver all his packages. The forest animals are worried, but when Santa tells them the story of the very first Christmas, when Christ was born, the animals discover the true spirit of the season. Full color.
When Santa goes for a long walk in the forest and falls asleep, the animals worry there won't be a Christmas. But Santa tells them Christmas isn't about presents, it's about Christ. And then he tells them the nativity story, complete with beautiful illustrations.
I love this story, and so do my kids. It's a nice way to balance including Santa in our Christmas celebration. What a lovely reminder that Christ is the reason for the holiday.
