I read this too A and K and I felt that the lesson within the story was a very important one for them know. Christmas is not just about presents it is about giving to others. Within this story a group of friends and their neighborhood are affected by Hurricane Sandy. Some kids may not get a Christmas so this group of friends decide to do something about it. When Santa sees their kindness he does something special for them.
This is a good book to read around the holidays because it feels you with warmth to read about others doing good things for others.
