Remember the old Art Linkletter/Bill Cosby show "Kids Say The Darnedest Things?"
For author Kristy Haile, when her 4-year old son Ty told her that he was the "new real Santa Claus," she thought it was just a cute phase her child was going through, using his imagination to the fullest! So she kept a journal of all the cute things that he said and did for the next couple of years while he was "Santa Claus."
Now Kristy shares those memories in her book, "I Am Santa," a delightfully charming account of the little boy who would be "Santa." This is a book that would be perfect holiday reading for the entire family!
About I Am Santa:One day little Nicholas wandered away from his mom and his sister while they were out shopping because he has always felt mostly invisible in comparison to his sister Holly. Little Nicholas meets an old man sitting on a bench at the mall. This old man tells Nicholas he is Santa Claus and that he is very sick and dying. Santa Claus also tells Nicholas he will now be the new real Santa Claus and the elves would be in touch with him shortly. Little Nicholas believes this old man a hundred and ten percent that he is to become the new real Santa Claus.
Enjoy this journey into a little boy’s imagination as he struggles in a world of doubt, continuously striving to turn non believers into believers. I believe my son is the new real Santa Claus no matter what other people may believe. The question is, do you believe?
About Kristy Haile
Californian Kristy Haile earned an Associate’s degree in Dental Hygiene from Northeastern University in Boston and then worked as a hygienist in Massachusetts and California. She moved from her hometown of Turlock, CA to Los Angeles, where her two children became actors on TV (The Office, Criminal Minds, Desperate Housewives), movies (Chihuahua: The Movie) and in commercials.
At age 4, son Ty came to believe he was Santa Claus. Haile kept a journal of the funny and unusual things her son said and did over the next two years, as well as of people’s reactions to his self-identification as the “new real Santa Claus.” That journal was the basis for her latest book, I Am Santa.
