Based on the true story of how a little girl lifted a whole city during Christmas in 1897. Virginia is a girl who believes wholeheartedly in Santa Claus. But is he real? Or is he just a made-up person that doesn't exist? Young Virginia wrote to The Sun and editor, Francis Church gave a reply that is still talked about today and remains one of the most reprinted editorial ever to run in any English newspaper. The book is a great way to introduce children to the spirit of Christmas and what it means to believe in Santa Claus. A gift that will be treasured for many years to come.

"Oh what an amazing book to read!

When your child comes to you asking that glorious question, "Is Santa real?" this is the book to read with them!

I absolutely LOVE this answer. I've been telling this to my son for years! He never really knew the commercial Santa Claus except what he sees on TV. But he always knew of his Spirit and the Spirit of Christmas, as well as the reason for the Season -- Celebrating the birth of Jesus.

Well written. Beautiful art work. Based on a true story. And they included the actual "Letter to the Editor and response" from the New York "The Sun" from back in the 1800s.


"I LOVE this book. I collect Christmas books to read with my kids and I picked this one up on a whim. I love everything about it. I read it tonight with my kids and Emily thought it was great. She wanted me to read it again. It gets to the heart of what Santa really means. Great story for kids of all ages."
