Mom, Is There a Santa Claus? by Susan J Berger has Christmas as its theme and is helpful in making children understand the concept of Santa Claus and the magic and spirit of Christmas. Lucas did not believe in Santa Claus. He thought only babies believed in Santa. He asks his mother whether Santa Claus really exists. She tells him that it's the spirit of Santa that enters the minds and hearts of the people who are willing to listen and that there will always be a Santa Claus, as long as children believe in and guard the dream. Lucas then decides to become the dream keeper to his brother, David.

The story is adorable and the author captures the essence of the season beautifully. The illustrations are vivid and delightful and they breathe life into the characters and scenes. It's a good bedtime storybook for parents and grandparents to read out to their kids and grandkids, especially during the Christmas season. The book can also be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Kids can relate well to the question Lucas asked his mother.

The author speaks about a topic that every child would have asked their parents at least once, and the reply given to Lucas by his mother will touch the hearts of readers. The story will help readers understand the magic of Santa Claus and the essence and spirit of the Christmas season.
