Summary
A little girl's belief in Santa is restored in this ode to the magic of Christmas. This is a holiday gift readers will treasure for years to come!

It's two weeks before Christmas, and Deja is worried that Santa might not be able to visit her--after all, as a city kid, she doesn't have a chimney for him to come down and none of the parking spots on her block could fit a sleigh, let alone eight reindeer! But with a little help from her family, community, and Santa himself, Deja discovers that the Christmas spirit is alive and well in her city.

With bold, colorful illustrations that capture the joy of the holidays, this picture book from award-winning author Tiffany D. Jackson and illustrator Reggie Brown is not to be missed.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In her accessibly written picture book debut, Jackson centers Deja, a Black child of Jamaican descent who asks myriad questions regarding Santa's methods of reaching her city home. When classmates instill seeds of doubt, Deja worries about Santa's existence--and his limitations. Not only does her apartment lack a chimney, but her city does not look like classic Christmas towns: "Okay, but where does he park his sleigh? There's no free parking spots on our block at night and ain't none of them big enough for nine reindeers!" But as her mother, neighbors, and relatives offer reasonable explanations, Deja sees the light ("Makes sense"), and it's revealed that Santa, who is also Black, has no issues visiting. Warm, imaginative digital art by debut illustrator Brown offer a nuanced portrait of Deja's family and community in this reassuring book for any child who's ever worried about Santa's magic reaching them. Ages 4--8. (Oct.)"
