Kids Say the Darndest Things to Santa Claus Volume 2: 25 Years of Santa Stories is a work of non-fiction in the comedy, holiday reading, and true to life sub-genres, and was penned by author Don Kennedy. This is the second book in the series and consists of anecdotes about the author’s experience of volunteering as Santa Claus for over 25 years. The stories within this collection concern children in a wide range of circumstances, and vary from the hilarious to the heartbreaking to the heartwarming. A charming narrative and wonderful insight into what Christmas can mean to children everywhere, both the hope it brings as well as the excitement.
Author Don Kennedy really knows how to deliver a holiday text that will warm even the deepest recesses of the hardest hearts during this Christmas season. I was fascinated to step into a perspective that I’d never really thought about before, and experience a secret world of young children and their fondest wishes, whispered to a figure they trust and believe in. The work is beautifully presented and always easy to pick up for a beautiful, emotional moment, and I also loved the fact that Santa Don didn’t shy away from some of the more pressing issues and harrowing circumstances that some kids go through. This is a work which really illustrates the magic of hope, and how Christmas can be a conduit to hope for a better future. Overall, I would highly recommend Kids Say the Darndest Things to Santa Claus Volume 2: 25 Years of Santa Stories for anyone looking for a charming stocking filler this holiday season.
