Yes, Virginia: There Is a Santa Claus Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1897, eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon wrote the New York Sun to ask a simple question: Is there a Santa Claus? The editor's response was a stirring defense of hope, generosity, and the spirit of childhood. His essay has been reprinted countless times since, and the phrase "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus" has become part of American Christmas lore.

Based on these actual events, Yes, Virginia is the story of a little girl who taught a city to believe.

Synopsis:

In 1897, eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon wrote to the "New York Sun" newspaper to ask a simple question: Is there a Santa Claus? This edition is based on the 2009 CBS animated special. Full color.
