I can easily tell you that this book will go down in history along with the Night Before Christmas and the like. NOT ONLY is it a beautifully told story, but since a pouch of Santa Dust comes with each copy, your children can “live the story” and sprinkle their own Santa Dust and experience the magic for themselves. 

The MomBuzz Review

I loved this book and concept,   If you are spending Christmas away from home – maybe at Grandma’s or a hotel – and your children think that Santa won’t find them, this can eliminate their stress. Finally, if you are moving to a new home, it can be a fun Christmas tradition to start! I suggest The Magical Tale of Santa Dust to anyone with children ages 4 and up! 

New York Magazine

I am confident the story will become a new tradition for your family holiday readings. The book includes its own little red pouch filled with Santa dust too. You will once again believe in the magic and awe that Santa brings to Christmas and the children.  

Beachbound Books

The Magical Tale of Santa Dust is a heartwarming story that is sure to become a Christmas tradition. The book comes with a red velvet pouch full of magic Santa dust.

I found this book about a few years ago at a small bookstore thinking it would be perfect for my two year old grandson. Since then this book has become a Christmas Eve tradition. After Church and dinner, I snuggle with my grandchildren to read the story; and each year, somehow, as we reach the end of the book, a note from Santa falls out. The note tells the children where to look for the bag of Santa Dust. After we find the bag, we go outside and sprinkle the Santa Dust on the lawn. Returning into the house, we are greeted by heavy footsteps and the sounds of bells. Lo and behold, who is there, but Santa with a sack of toys for each of the grandchildren. It is a joyous sight!

I loved this book. How does Santa find his way to our homes each year?  Perhaps a little Santa Dust to guide him our way?  I always envied children who believed in the magic of Christmas.  Sure, we all know it’s a tale but it is also an imaginative magical adventure during the cold winter months.  Isn’t it nice to believe that a mysterious jolly man in a reindeer sleigh would come and bring you gifts for no other reason than you have been good? The Magical Tale of Santa Dust will easily become a Christmas Tradition.  It is meant to read to your child on Christmas Eve, the same time you sprinkle the dust and leave out the cookies for Santa and his reindeer.
