For many people, the Christmas season is a time of happiness, family and celebration. This is especially true for Alan Anderson. In his new book, The Christmas Sleigh (published by WestBow Press), Anderson weaves his fond memories of Christmas into a children’s story book that is sure to put anyone in the Christmas spirit.

The Christmas Sleigh tells the story of a young girl who is out on the town celebrating Christmas. Her parents, who are separated, put aside their differences for the evening on behalf of their daughter. While on a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the park, the friendly driver tells an exciting Christmas story about his own life which in the end has a magical affect on his customers.

Tommy the Christmas sleigh driver only seeks to make his passengers happy, an outlook on life that Anderson hopes will touch readers. “It is a story that can have great affect upon anyone willing to listen and apply, but there is more to him than meets they eye and Anya comes to learn his secret.”

“Happiness cannot be found in seeking after selfish pleasures,” says Anderson, “it can only be found as one puts forth sincere effort to make others happy.”
