An excerpt from the book:

“Tyler asked his older sister, ‘Where does Santa go on vacation after Christmas?’

His older sister replied, ‘Maybe he visits France and learns how to say hello in French: Bonjour. Possibly he takes a picture in front of the Eiffel Tower.’

‘Wow!’ Tyler shouted with delight.”
