I received this book through Goodreads Giveaways for an honest review.

As an adult I'd rate this book a 2.5. I found a few grammar issues and some words overly repetitive. The story was interesting. There were some good talking points to have with kids.

My kids really liked the story.

The illustrations were beautiful.

I received this book through the First Reads program.

Letter from Santa Claus is a nicely illustrated story about a little boy in the hospital with pneumonia in 1949. He writes a letter to Santa and receives one back from Santa. He is released from the hospital just after receiving the letter.

The book is published by iUniverse. The price seems a little out of line for a 24 page paperback.
