“A tender story about the importance of giving…Simple but moving..The illustrations are soft, almost misty, like memory, and their tone is nostalgic and inviting. The book is likely to bring comfort and security to children and families facing a medical crisis, particularly around the holidays…A small but strong book about compassionate action.” (Resource Links 2012-12-01)

Island Santa

Excerpt from Island Santa

Sam’s sister, accompanied by their father, is in a hospital far away from their home on a remote island off the West Coast. Determined to be with his family for Christmas, Sam catches a ride on a Santa Boat, a vessel that will bring Santa Claus and gifts to the children all along the coast before delivering Sam at last to the hospital.
