Dear Santa: Children's Christmas Letters and Wish Lists, 1870 - 1920 - Chronicle Books

4.5 stars. I encountered this one while browsing Twitter around Christmas. It looked amazingly adorable and I just knew I had to have this one. I ordered it, and it arrived last week. :)

The Santa Claus Man by Alex Palmer
The Santa Claus Man: The Rise and Fall of a Jazz Age Con Man and the Invention of Christmas in New York - Alex Palmer

Before the charismatic John Duval Gluck, Jr. came along, letters from New York City children to Santa Claus were destroyed, unopened, by the U.S. Post Office. Gluck saw an opportunity, and created the Santa Claus Association. The effort delighted the public, and for 15 years money and gifts flowed to the only group authorized to answer Santa’s mail.

 

This book is not only about John Gluck and the Santa Claus Association but also about New York City history. There are stories involving stolen art, phony Boy Scouts, a kidnapping, pursuit by the FBI, a Coney Island bullfight, the country's first citywide Christmas tree and Macy's first grand holiday parade.

 

This seasonal read is perfect for Santa Claus lovers and history buffs.

Letters from Santa: A Christmas Alphabet Book
Letters from Santa: A Christmas Alphabet Book - Katrina Streza

Katrina Streza caught my attention with this cover. I love holiday art that resembles things you would have seen in the 50s, especially with the light blue and red combination. I also like Alphabet Books, which are great ways to teach little ones the ABCs. This one is very cute. Each letter is a stamp, which shows that they use the word "letters" in two ways: letters of the alphabet, and letters like children send Santa (this allowed me to teach my kids that some words have different meanings, an additional learning situation that was unexpected). The words for each letter are things (the author says "traditions") that Santa likes, such as "A is for angel" and "B is for bird."

Letters from Santa: A Christmas Alphabet
Letters from Santa: A Christmas Alphabet - Katrina Streza Letters from Santa by Katrina Streza
Illustrated very colorful children's book showing the alphabet and things
that can make a Christmas a special time for all.
H for holly to welcome friends to your house is my favorite.
and q for quilt that my grandmother sewed. The thing I don't like about this type of book is you have to read it in your cloud reader-via a browser and the program wants to store things on your pc, 50 mb and I don't care to do that.
