The Santa Club is a wonderful parenting resource and a stunning children's book, and is sure to become an annual family favorite.

Goodreads Summary

This book is perfect for children asking about the real Santa.  The book even contains a little warning at the very beginning, stating that the child must be wondering about Santa and must not reveal the knowledge that lays beyond the first few pages.  Children are naturally curious and this book answers just the right amount of a child's query without disclosing too much.  The illustrations are vibrant and fun, a touch realistic while still being bold and imaginative-really holds a child's attention. 

The book will emphatically tell the child, "Yes," there is a Santa.  Santa is described as having existed long ago, inspiring others to become Santas as well.  There is also a couple of mentions of Jesus and God.  The book does not push the author's view, the child may decide for him/herself.  The author adds a wonderful touch towards the end of the book by inducting the child into the Santa Club, a Club geared towards generosity.  This is a wonderful book for children and their parents, especially around Christmastime.
