Everyone is gathering at Nana and Papa's house for Christmas. Andy loved Christmas with Papa, especially Papa's beautiful sleigh. Papa showed Andy a key, and said simply "All things are possible when you believe." The next day, Papa explained the significance of the Magic Key and Andy was now its keeper. Being the Keeper of Santa's Magic Key turned out to be much harder than Andy thought. With Andy in charge, Christmas was turning into a disaster! What would Santa think?
Families will share this treasure of a book for many years (if not generations). It has that classic feel, but is timeless, too. The Magic Christmas Key could become a special family tradition.
This is a beautiful story. I especially loved Andy's relationship with his grandfather and the special bond they share. For younger children, the story will help explain how Santa visits different homes. For older children, it is a story about responsibility, honesty, and being careful what you wish for.
There is a lot of depth to this story about family, tradition, and the meaning of Christmas.
This is a story to share together for sheer enjoyment. You can talk about family, expectations, and the meaning of Christmas.
