My Review

This is a charming book. I liked the concept of how Saint Nick came to be and his Christmas Magic-Keepers. This book is the type of book that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults. Although, I would read this to the bit older children that are "aging" out of believing in Santa Claus. The illustrations are really nice and colorful. They helped to bring the story to life.

Meet the Authors:

​Anna and Gunnar are the husband-and-wife team behind Keeping Christmas Magic. Anna immigrated from Russia at age 12 and began her American journey in Swampscott, MA, attending Boston University before moving out to California to pursue her entrepreneurial career which has culminated in her co-founding Upstart, an AI lending platform. 
A third-generation Marine, Gunnar grew up pretty much everywhere there's a Marine base before going to Cornell for undergrad, deploying as a Human Intelligence Officer to Iraq, the Horn of Africa and Bosnia before attending Harvard for business school. Gunnar's entrepreneurial career has focused in education software and services where he's founded and invested in a handful of companies including his most recent company, Array. 
When their then-six-year-old son Tristan started asking hard questions about Santa, they didn't have good answer. Wanting to keep Christmas as magical as possible for as long as possible they looked for a children's book to help and when they couldn't find one, they wrote it. Originally, the poem was just for Tristan and his baby sister Sasha, but some close friends convinced them to submit it for publishing and the more they worked on the story, the more they felt like it needed to be told. They hope that the book does for parents around the world, what's it's done for them, help make an otherwise difficult conversation a beautiful experience instead.
