Santa in a Snow Globe  

by A.H. Edelman 

NEW ILLUSTRATED CHILDREN’S BOOK HONESTLY EXPLAINS  WHY THE HOLIDAYS WILL BE DIFFERENT THIS YEAR — AND HOW  TO HOLD ONTO THE CHRISTMAS MAGIC 

The holidays are typically a season of unbridled merriment and joy. However, this year’s  celebrations are going to look a bit different. 

Recognizing the challenges this year’s holiday season will bring, New Jersey mom A.H.  Edelman was inspired to write Santa in a Snow Globe [October 2020, paperback, hardcover, and  ebook], the first illustrated children’s book to offer parents, caregivers, and children a starting  point to talk about life’s new realities—explained straightforwardly by Santa—complete with  timeless advice, beautiful inclusive illustrations, and a big dose of Christmas cheer. 

The mom of two was reading the business section of the Sunday New York Times when she saw  a story about protecting Santas from COVID-19 this year. “The president of the International  Brotherhood of the Real Bearded Santas—yes, it’s a real trade group—mentioned how they  would explain to kids this year that Santa would need to sit behind some type of barrier,”  Edelman says. “Evidently Santa is in a high-risk group: many have diabetes, are overweight, and  elderly.” 

Edelman thought about how, in 2020, children have had to adapt to new holiday traditions and  celebrations nearly all year long. “Kids already couldn’t celebrate Easter, they sat out most of the  summer and Halloween. They’re really going to want to see Santa for Christmas, or at least be  assured he’s still coming,” she adds. 

Going beyond mask-wearing and social distancing, Santa in a Snow Globe also touches on  issues the world is facing today, including climate change and protests. However, Edelman’s  Santa still shares a positive message of hope and the importance of appreciating the simpler  things in life. 

Continues Edelman, “As a parent myself, I can understand people asking, is this really the news  we want to share with our children? And my answer is, ‘Yes, we have to!’ They already know  something is up. But the fact is I’m also an optimist. I’m a grown Jewish woman who believes in 

Santa and happy endings. So, of course, Santa will show up on Christmas Eve, but before he  does, he has a few words to say about what he sees happening in the world and what matters  most.”

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This story was adorable. It was a quick read. I read it in under five minutes. I also loved the lesson in compassion in the story as well.
