FLIGHT OF THE REINDEER: The True Story of Santa Claus and His Christmas Mission. Robert Sullivan, Glenn Wolff (Illustrator) / Hardcover / Published 1997/ 96 pages. Flight of the Reindeer

A perfect companion to the SantaGPS software! Everyone believes in Christmas, but what about Santa Claus? Is it only the young who wait for that one special evening every year? With the expertise of some of the world's most reknowned Arctic experts, wildlife biologists, historians, and polar explorers, along with authentic photographs and illustrations, Robert Sullivan offers proof positive that Santa and his team do exist. I LOVE this book. I bought one for myself and then for my nephews and nieces. It is wonderfully put together and it is ESSENTIAL for anyone with kids at that "skeptical" age.

 Auntie Claus by Elise Primavera

 cover

Amazon.com says:  Award-winning illustrator Elise Primavera's gorgeous artwork is positively luminous, recalling the splendid Christmas television specials How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the Claymation version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in extraordinary compositions, compellingly portrayed characters, and unusual perspectives. Not at all surprisingly, Nickelodeon Films has already secured the rights to this action-packed, highly visual story to make a full-length live-action film in the year 2000.

THE POLAR EXPRESS by Chris Van Allsburg.

Amazon.Com says: One couldn't select a more delightful and exciting premise for a children's book than the tale of a young boy lying awake on Christmas Eve only to have Santa Claus sweep by and take him on a trip with other children to the North Pole. And one couldn't ask for a more talented artist and writer to tell the story than Chris Van Allsburg. Allsburg, a sculptor who entered the genre nonchalantly when he created a children's book as a diversion from his sculpting, won the 1986 Caldecott Medal for this book, one of several award winners he's produced. The Polar Express rings with vitality and wonder.

The Physics of Christmas - From the Aerodynamics of Reindeer to the Thermodynamics of Turkey - By Roger Highfield; Hardcover

Roger Highfield loves science, and he loves Christmas, too. Combining the two in The Physics of Christmas is his attempt to refute the notion that "the materialist insights of science destroy our capacity to wonder, leaving the world a more boring and predictable place." To that end, Highfield presents an amusing, eclectic, and trivia-filled collection of scientific observations about one of the Western world's most beloved holidays. (Amazon.com)
