Skypark at Santa’s Village

Celebrated children’s book author, C.A. Hartnell, has been honored as the Gold Award Recipient by Mom’s Choice Awards for her Vintage Activity and Coloring Book, Skypark at Santa’s Village.

Honored for excellence in family-friendly media, products and services for the Juvenile Book category (ages 5-8), Skypark at Santa’s Village takes children on a blast to the past throughout the activity book with loads of nostalgic, 1950’s-era coloring pages and fun, engaging activities, including following a map through the original Santa’s Village.

“I have the fondest memories of traveling with my family down Route 66 to the city of San Bernardino, and then up in the mountains until we reached the magical outdoor adventure, SkyPark at Santa’s Village,” said author C.A. Hartnell. “It brings me pure joy to share my family’s holiday tradition with children in a way that provides them entertaining, educational and safe learning activities.”

In addition to this activity book, Hartnell recently re-released her fictional four-book series, “The 1950s Adventures of Pete and Carol Ann.” The four books, “SCARY SPRING: Our Polio Fright of 1955,” “SINISTER SUMMER: Cars, Cruisers, and Close Calls,” "FEROCIOUS FALL: Our Wild Weather Escapes” and “WILD WINTER: Christmas, Clues, and Crooks,” are inspired by actual events from Hartnell's childhood that take children back to life in the 1950s growing up in El Monte, California.

Skypark at Santa’s Village Vintage Activity and Coloring Book is available for purchase on Hartnell’s website, priced at $5.99.
