When you told me about your idea for the book, I could not figure out how you were going to introduce parental gift giving. After I read it, I said to myself, she did it. Kudos!

Yes! Just finished purchasing the last item listed on their letter to Santa, and while hiding the presents in the closet, or putting them in the basement, panic strikes. For weeks now, children have been talking about Santa and anticipating his Christmas Eve visit. Christmas is always an exciting and magical time for a child and being their Santa brings great joy, and always will. Now they are coming of age and the questions arise, “Is this the year to tell them about Santa? How will they react? What will they say? Will they be upset? How should this be handled? Help!”
Author Gena Cooke’s debut book Santa Gets Help for Christmas helps ease the worry parents and guardians face at this crossroad of their son or daughter’s coming of age. Her children's Christmas book is interactive and assists parents and guardians in bringing up the discussion without leaving out the delightful Santa. Santa Gets Help for Christmas has a personal touch as well. Embedded within the story is a tailored letter from Santa and the Elves. Closure with Santa becomes an enjoyable experience for a child and their parent, or guardian.
Finding out Santa does not exist can be traumatic for a child. At a certain stage, a child may hear about the reality of Santa through a sibling, peer or just have a feeling. Due to uncertainty, a child will make the decision to ask their parent or guardian the question, "Is Santa real?" Most parents or guardians will answer, "Yes, Santa is real." After all, Santa did exist a long time ago. He was a man we all know as Saint Nicholas. Santa Gets Help for Christmas keeps Santa alive in the heart of a child while answering the question, “Who’s putting the presents under the Christmas tree?”
Brad Tirey, Senior Publishing Consultant at Authorhouse, stated in a conversation with Gena after he read her manuscript, “When you told me about your idea for the book, I could not figure out how you were going to introduce parental gift giving. After I read it, I said to myself, she did it. Kudos!”
Parents and guardians can read Santa Gets Help for Christmas to children of all ages, and at any time throughout the year. Whether it be in preparation for the upcoming holiday, or after Santa's visit, parents and guardians ought to decide, based on their own child’s readiness, when to introduce parental and guardianship gift giving at Christmas.
