My Mom is an Elf!
by Jon Haga
As an elementary teacher, Jonathan Haga was always scared that a student would “ruin” Christmas for another by telling them the big secret about Santa. His book, My Mom Is an Elf!, helps to squash that possibility and instill the idea that Christmas is about family and believing in each other, as well as SANTA! It is up to all of us to bring the idea of everlasting spirit to life.
