Letter from Santa Claus
by Robin Jones

Where does Santa Claus find his helpers to work in the North Pole with him? How do they get there? These are age old questions that are answered in a thoughtful and fun loving way by the Author Robin Jones as he reveals what happened to him when he was five years old in 1949 and very sick with pneumonia. His family takes him to the children's hospital in Toronto where he receives good care from the nurses and doctors. Though his father works hard during the day, he is always sure to visit Robin and read him stories. One night , dad wakes Robin to share a special letter he received.

It's from Santa Claus, and it tells the little boy about the exciting things happening at the North Pole in preparation for Christmas.

The heartwarming letter from Santa is just what Robin needs to get better and leave the hospital in time for Christmas.

Pacific Book Review

Reviewed by Beth Adams

LETTER FROM SANTA CLAUS is a roller-coaster of emotions ideal for supporting any child who has an illness, as well as a sole-enriching Christmas story. It is a wonderful achievement of pushing the boundaries of emotions resulting in a memorable story to children being read this story, as well as the parents reading it. For a book to achieve these impressions in such a few pages makes for a wonderful gift to all

With six children, seven grand kids and a great grand child Robin is more than qualified to be writing a children's book. He was raised in a bi-racial family with oral traditions and books galore being read around the table by his Father. Robin has written over three hundred poems from silly to the sublime. One of his main objectives to fuel his energy is to try and meet a new person every day. He belongs to the Victoria Story Tellers Guild in British Columbia and first told his story there. One of his author friends suggested that he publish the tale so that others might enjoy it as well. He has been promoting the book around North America since its publication and does readings at libraries and schools.
